The Sani Sisters Present: A Conversation with Maisie Brown

Incoming North Carolina A&T student Maisie Brown’s journey as an activist started in an algebra class in middle school. The class had been given an assignment to create a new state flag using different equations. When Brown researched the Mississippi state flag, she learned of its history and the Confederate emblem on it. Since then, she’s played a crucial role in social justice movements, state and country-wide, including the removal of the Mississippi state flag last month.

Brown spoke with Sani’s co-founders, Niki and Ritika Shamdasani, in a “Sani Sisters Present” Instagram Live session about activism, Black history education, and future steps to create social change.
