- Rev. Sekou is a Reverend of Soul (and a real one too)
- In 2014 pastor, author and activist Rev. Sekou was arrested multiple times while teaching non-violent civil disobedience in Ferguson after the death of Michael Brown. That experience shaped some of the music on his new album called In Times Like These. From songs of peaceful protest to explosive soul to a Bob Marley cover, Rev. Sekou performs with such passion and heart that it's hard to picture him doing anything else. But he has studied philosophy at the New School, religion at Harvard University, and lectured throughout the country and abroad. He talks about where his passion for social justice comes from and shares a touching story about his grandmother's dignified reaction the first time he experienced racism as a child in his small Southern town.
