Works of Freedom Ohio: Eric Rollin

In this episode my boy Eric Rollin and I sit down to chat about his company Works of Freedom Ohio and the work they are doing to help inspire the youth through music in the Columbus, Oh area. We are in strange times with the Covid-19 shutdowns and protests spreading across the country in response to the killing of George Floyd. Eric has a great perspective about what is currently happening to black communities all across America. I’ve had some pretty deep and intense experiences with Eric and respect his words. I appreciate his honesty when talking about these difficult topics.

He is the founder of the Columbus Chicken and Beer Festival, co-founder and singer/songwriter  for the national band Mistar Anderson, and founder of the local music initiative "The Break" (longest running freestyle hip-hop open-mic night in Columbus, Ohio).
