My name is Prince Shakur.

I am a Jamaican American writer, filmmaker, and activist based out of Ohio; currently a co-founder of Two Woke Minds, a Youtube Channel that centers the experiences of people of color in travel and activism. I have a Bachelors of Arts degree in Creative Writing from Ohio University and is a board member for the People’s Justice League. My dedication to activism began during my final year at Ohio University with the uprising of the Black Lives Matter Movement when I organized hundreds of students on his campus for numerous protests in the name of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. From there, I became a boycott organizer for UNITE HERE Local 8, helped organize a campaign against gentrification in Seattle, participated in NUIT DEBOUT protests in Paris, spent a month protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota, and interrupted a speech by Bill Clinton to criticize the 1994 Crime Bill. I am currently freelance writing for publications, like Teen Vogue and INTO, about social justice, LGBTQ awareness, and my experiences as a queer, person of color.

I have made this Patreon...

because although I am hustling, it is sometimes hard to make ends meet as a freelancer. Between traveling, editing videos, sending out pitches, repairing video equipment, and working to be true in my solidarity with as many movements as possible, it becomes clear that the world does not always help out those who make a life of their activism and art. So I've made this Patreon because I want to give folks the chance to support a young, determined black artist who has a big heart and a ferocious pen.

One of my hobbies while traveling is taking film photographs. I think it is intimate and forces me to see the world in a way that is different. If you donate $10 a month, I'll send you 10 photo prints a month. 
Goals
$0 of $600 per month
This goal will help ease the cost of some travel expenses and repairs for electronics. Over the next few months, I'll be traveling around before heading off to Europe to do a new series of blogs about sociopolitical happenings there.
