Young Black Lives Matter activists share many of the same social justice values as their Civil Rights Era forebears, but often there’s little interaction between the two generations. Sages and Seekers, an organization that bridges the generational divide, is changing that. In this video, we meet Ava and Mark — she a young activist, he a veteran one. They’re both still fighting, and now, they’re connecting, too.

This is the fifth and final video in “Bridging Divides,” a five-part series hosted by Scott Shigeoka, in which we talk to people whose personal experiences show us how real-life divisions can be overcome. See the transcript of this conversation here
