Emily Yates–Berkeley Protest Festival 2015

March 21st, 2020 · Comments

As we're all hunkered down at home in this pandemic, I'm pulling some interviews that inspired me or made me smile in hopes that they may do the same for you. I interviewed Emily Yates in 2015 as I held the microphone in one hand and my five-month old daughter in my other. All of Emily's songs, in my opinion, give us space to consider important topics and smile at the same time but one of my favorites that feels like an appropriate and timely reminder is "Try Not to Be a Dick."

Emily speaks about how she went from being a military officer to a ukulele enthusiast and gives samples of a few of her songs in this piece.

Even when our time or the time of a loved one is up, we live on through our stories. During her time on earth, Corliss Watkins was a fierce advocate who lived a life of service, empowerment and advocacy as she strived to inspire those she worked with to be the best versions of themselves. 

Corliss had battled cancer for a few years at the time she did this interview and died five years later. She describes how she used the fighter within her to advocate for herself and her faith to get her through. Although she is no longer with us, her legacy and her story live on.
