What inspires people to help others? Chef Marcus Samuelsson owner of Harlem’s Red Rooster and FEED founder Lauren Bush Lauren come from different backgrounds but have both found a way to share their strength with others. Samuelsson and Bush Lauren discuss their individual paths to social impact work and how they use their networks for good. They discuss the role of privilege in one’s life, as Lauren notes: “It’s literally like a ‘birth lottery’ – just because of where you are born, your next meal is not a guarantee.” And how acknowledging this privilege broadens and deepens once perspective and empathy, “The luxury of being adopted and the luxury of being African is that… you get windows into different worlds. [Ethiopia] is more than this quick sound bite or how people want to label us with false narratives,” says Samuelsson.
