African born in America: Benzel Jimmerson (@benzeljimmerson)
“I don’t disassociate because there is a gift in all people. I’m not rejective of that side I just have chosen to understand it, understand the mentalities, and be able to utilize that understanding as a gift to the people I identify with."
Benzel Jimmerson, Owner of Diversity Dynamics and Chair of the Economic Development Committee for NAACP Colorado Chapter, describes his experiences of being MIXD.
From black cowboy to hip hop, Benzel highlights his experiences of accessing two different worlds. One of whiteness from his Irish and German mother and as an African born in America from his father’s side. Join us on a unique journey into Benzel’s life as a MIXD male and a glimpse of what has lead him to fuel his current life work today.
