Leesa Renee Hall is a speaker, writer and tech industry veteran. I first became aware of Leesa’s work when she introduced me to the notion of the “Like” fast and social media algorithms that are inherently racist. But I was fascinated when I learned she has been the organist at hundreds of funerals.
In this conversation, we begin with sharing about our ancestry and some of the genealogy research we’ve done. We learn about Leesa’s early experiences in church and how she became an organist. We discover her approach to curious inquiry and expressive writing (Why at 4:30am specifically?) and we drift into a discussion of white fragility.
