Amala Ekpunobi grew up in a leftist home and worked as an organizer for the political left. She never questioned the narrative — until she discovered the racism she thought she was fighting against was being perpetuated by her side. “We are bringing back segregation in this country, and people will sell it to you that we are doing it in a positive manner...it perpetuates the same racist narrative that they are trying to run away from.” Amala shares her story of questioning leftist ideology, which ultimately led to changing her mind.
