In this episode of Love. Period., Emmy nominated actress Aunjanue Ellis mentors us on how to love the world better. Aside from being an actress, she’s also an activist who recently worked to get the Mississippi flag changed.
She is the president and CEO of Miss Myrtis Films, and co-founder of Take it Down America. These are two great organizations that have strived to abolish racist southern symbols from Mississippi and other surrounding states through education, advocacy, and short documentaries.
