Underdog Dreaming Liberation
Audio Nuggets is honored to welcome Derrick Stephens for Episode 12: Underdog Dreaming Liberation.
Derrick brings his uniqueness and dreaming to the cypher. This conversation unpacks the shoulders to stand on and obligations of Black bodies of this generation to “get into a lot of good trouble,” acknowledging that planting seeds for tomorrow requires liberation. Derrick reveals that from a young age, he was always dreaming of freedom and liberation.
To Derrick, liberation is freedom for his family to live life in a way that is enjoyable. Free to dream. Free to question. Free to be our authentic self. By not creating unnecessary adversarial relationships, Derrick is on the healing journey by showing up, sacrifice, giving love, loving oneself, and making hard boundaries.
