Being Black in America is Precarious
What if your skin color is what made your life precarious? Not an illness, not an accident, not some experience that happened to you, but the color of your skin. Leah talks with Saja Butler, a musician and owner of Urban Monk Studios in Fort Collins, CO about her experiences of being Black in America. Through sharing personal and painful stories, Saja challenges us to sit with the discomfort that we are feeling right now. She inspires us to look at ourselves honestly even if we don’t like what we see. Here is where the change begins. And, of course, Music Heals!
Saja Butler Graduated from the Colorado Contemporary Music College with a degree in Music Theory and Instruction. She opened Urban Monk Studios in 2007.
