It was fantastic to sit down with musician, spoken word poet, artist and Ballymuner, Adam Mohamed. We talk about growing up in Ballymun as a Black person, telling his truth and not accepting the narratives imposed on him, finding expression in poetry and creating an anthem for himself.
We also discuss the protests in Ballymun, his disappointment with them and how punching down only serves to let those in power off the hook for decades of neglect and bad political policies.
