Changing the Narrative episode 4- Mountain Top

Sometimes it's hard to see the view. Sometimes there is no view at all. From the "valley" of Inglewood and South Central, Jonathan Zeno shares how the words of slain Black Panthers leader, Fred Hampton, influence his perception of the state of black culture and inspires empathy and strength as he climbs that mountain to a more optimistic outlook.

Avion Warner, whom you will meet in the next episode, shares a poem, written from a dark place, as he struggles with his families eviction from their longtime home amidst the real estate boom exploding in Inglewood. 

Quest tells of Better Days as she works and dreams of her music success. You'll say you knew her when!


Music by Young Ambition. You can listen to more of Young Ambition and Quest on SoundCloud.

Correction: Tashad Rutherford is credited in this episode but is not included, but he will actually be featured in the next two episodes.
