Casual confidant to Malcom X, a gifted community organizer, and tireless advocate for justice, Yuri saw, spoke, and embodied the power of solidarity in her over 90 years of life. I had the privilege of sitting down with her granddaughter Akemi Kochiyama to talk about Yuri’s legacy and how we continue to strive for social justice on my podcast, Kiskadee.
