We are joined by the beautiful, ambitious and fun-loving lady herself, Miss Tequila Johnson. We had a great time discussing why voting matters, what it’s like to be a black woman in America, black culture; both why it matters and why it’s more fun, defunding the police, Black Lives Matter, systemic racism and her hope for the future, The Equity Alliance, and other very important topics such as Crossfit, journaling, and why she don’t drink no alcohol. Tequila Johnson is the co-founder and vice president of The Equity Alliance, a Tennessee-based nonprofit that equips black and brown citizens with tools and strategies to strengthen their communities and make government work better.
