"Leading with Love"


"Let's take a stand and show that LOVE is the way to go." – Hawk Newsome

Activist and founder of Black Lives Matter Greater New York, Hawk Newsome, is with us on DENtalks. He’s been called the next Martin Luther King Jr. as he is determined to lead the Black Lives Matter movement with love. Hawk has dedicated his adult life to the betterment of his community and our nation as a whole by bringing justice to an unjust system. Prior to founding Black Lives Matter Greater New York, he was a member of Justice League NYC. Not only has he helped victims of police brutality, he works with members of LGBT community, and victims of human trafficking. Over the past few years, he has worked tirelessly seeking justice for the families of those slain by police officers. He’s a Christian and he leans neither right nor left, instead he chooses to follow his heart and leads with love, compassion and kindness. Hawk sheds light on subjects some find difficult to discuss, including white privilege and his own anger. He is starting the necessary dialogue for change, and shows us how we all need to live through love.

“”At the core of every religion, is love. This is what we need. What if people just decided to love?” – Hawk Newsome
