As we navigate these painful waters together, let us remember the importance of empathy, love, & solidarity. We hope that this episode serves as a catalyst for understanding, healing, & positive change within our community.

Disclaimer: We want to emphasize that this episode of "Piper Carter Podcast" contains sensitive content that may be triggering for some listeners. If you or someone you know is experiencing intimate partner violence, please seek help immediately. Our aim is to provide support, raise awareness, & promote healing, but we are not professionals in the field. Reach out to qualified organizations and professionals for assistance.

Remember that the case is ongoing, and we respect the legal process. Our focus is on addressing the broader issues surrounding intimate partner violence and fostering a sense of community healing.

On January 7th, 2024, a voice fell silent. Kelly Mays, a Detroit native known for her fiery spirit & unwavering dedication to mental health advocacy, domestic violence support, arts, & culture was tragically murdered. Her vibrant legacy, however, remains a resounding whisper against the shadows of stigma & suffering.

Kelly, or "Native Child" wasn't just a champion; she was a warrior. She battled the invisible claws of mental illness with words woven into spells of strength & hope through her powerful poetry & mentorship.

Recent reports have emerged, suggesting that Kelly, a fierce advocate for mental health & victims of domestic violence, was herself a victim of the very affliction she ardently fought against.

The details surrounding her passing cast a chilling fog. Allegations point to her estranged husband Jimmy Brown, known by the Detroit Hip Hop community as Supa Emcee. As the legal wheels turn, whispers of truth begin to emerge, each detail adding another layer of grief to the tapestry of loss.

Supa was not just a prominent figure in the Detroit & Highland Park Hip Hop scenes, publicly he was a force for good within the community. His positive contributions and impact are undeniable. However, Supa's life took a turn when he suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car crash in October 2020. This tragedy challenges our perceptions & forces us to grapple with the duality of human nature.

///\\///\\ Hip Hop Feminism: A Powerful Force for Environmental Justice

HipHopFeminism #EnvironmentalJustice #HipHopCulture

A deep dive into the history and current state of hip hop feminism in the fight for environmental justice. Overall, I believe Hip Hop Feminism has the potential to be a transformative force in the fight for environmental justice. By combining artistic expression with social activism, it can mobilize communities, raise awareness, and inspire positive change.

Imagine having to choose between paying your water bill and buying groceries. That's the reality for countless families. This isn't right. Let's support organizations fighting for water affordability and demand solutions from political leaders. Everyone deserves access to clean, affordable water, air, and healthy environment.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this topic as well! Are there any specific aspects of Hip Hop Feminism or environmental justice that you find particularly interesting or important?
