North Hollywood hip-hop artist, painter, and YouTube commentator Kimi Katiti thinks forgiveness is getting a bad rap.
In her interview with Alma Cook, Kimi discusses why she believes forgiveness is the key to solving the racial conflicts of our time, explaining how her beliefs were shaped by Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, and—of all things!—her local skatepark. She also shares what it was like to go #1 in Uganda and Kenya, quit Twitter, and release her unfinished Garageband demos on Spotify.
