Humanitou: Conversations of Humanness + Creativity
22: Lewis Lee, community facilitator and mentor, on using technology and creativity to make change in the 53206, staying out of prison and cultivating a legacy of good
Lewis Lee struggled to stay out of prison when he was a young man, and then to find life purpose once he did. Now, he's a community leader, facilitator and mentor, a voice for social justice, and the Milwaukee-based curator of the Shared Studios Portal in the neighborhood where he came up. The 53206, where Lewis still lives, is the zip code with the highest incarceration rate of black men in America. Lewis is working to change that. He shares his story of using technology to negotiate gang peace and creative collaboration to maintain it, of working with the city's leadership on a fatherhood initiative, and building police-community relations. Among other things. More at humanitou.com.
