EP 40: Megalyn Echikunwoke AKA "We Stand with..."

12/7/2016

Megalyn Echikunwoke (Vixen, Arrow, House of Lies, The Steve Harvey Show) allows Utkarsh into her beautiful home for a chat. They bond over the challenges of having a difficult name and how they navigate other people's ignorance. Utkarsh then shares his recent struggles with making and releasing his new song "We Go High" which Megalyn was a part of and the two break down how they deal with failure and un-met expectations in their lives and careers. Finally, Megalyn grew up on a Navajo reservation, an experience which influenced her decision to make the trip to North Dakota and join The Sioux tribe in their protest of the Dakota Pipeline at Standing Rock.

She describes that experience and beautifully breaks down the challenges of both mind and body a disenfranchised people face. DO NOT MISS HISTORY BEING MADE!!!!
