New Jersey senator Cory Booker made headlines last week when he blasted Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
Senator Booker was pissed at Nielsen for her defense of U.S. President Donald Trump and his comments that African and Caribbean countries where shitholes.
It looks as though Cory Booker needs a wider platform to express his views and fight against the 45th POTUS.
Senator Booker launched a new podcast called “Lift Every Voice” will highlight overlooked issues of injustice and inequality, and give voice to inspiring stories of change
Senator Booker will be talking with grassroots activists, stakeholders, and organizers who are overcoming injustices and making a positive change in their communities.
“I know from living in Newark and traveling to communities across New Jersey and the country that many of the greatest, most powerful voices in our political process come from those on the ground who are painstakingly fighting each and every day to improve their neighborhoods,” Senator Booker told CollegeHipHop.com in a statement. “I hope this podcast will elevate their voices and shine light on important issues of righteousness and compassion that will inspire others to action.”

I am excited to share with all of you my new podcast: Lift Every Voice.Today is Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday – and I am launching today with the hope that this podcast will in some small way do his legacy justice. I believe strongly that some of the greatest, most powerful and moving voices come from those with boots on the ground, painstakingly fighting to make America a more equal and just nation. I hope to elevate their stories and spotlight important issues of injustice & inequality that will inspire others to action.My first guest is one of my heroes and a civil rights legend with a treasure trove of inspiring stories: John Lewis. We talked about #goodtrouble, his stories from the civil rights movement, activism today, and how we must never give up hope for progress despite forces trying to take us backwards.I hope you find this podcast inspiring, instructive and a bit of hopeful light amidst some of the challenging dark we face.
