Black is Beautiful, a name borrowed from a prior time and a movement celebrating pride and bringing awareness to continued disparities and police violence against people of color. Marcus Baskerville, co-founder of Weathered Souls Brewing Company, found himself brewing more than just a beer. He started a new movement, the Black is Beautiful fundraising effort to not only bring awareness to police brutality but to open people’s eyes to the lingering, sometimes more subtle, racism that surrounds us daily.
I debated releasing this episode until I built the full show, which when initially planned would be a show focusing on this beer’s impact in Lansdale. For now, that’s on the backburner. Instead, I decided to get to know Baskerville. We hear his story to beer and how one missed protest drove him to build a movement.
