On Monday, my friend James Robinson reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in sitting down and talking about racism in light of the recent murder of George Floyd and the need for America to wake up to systemic racism. We had our conversation and I'm continuing with more. Today I'm joined by musician, songwriter, entrepreneur, manager, raconteur, Bevis Griffin. Bevis shares his experience growing up in South Central Los Angeles in 50's and 60's to Wichita Falls, TX in the late 60's and Austin from the 70's to now. I would like to thank Bevis for sharing his story with me. We have a lot of work to do. Listening is the best place to start. Black Lives Matter.
Hear Bevis' first appearance on "How Did I Get Here?" ep. 59 from April 2012 HERE.
