When King asked what motivated him to “pay attention to systematic racism,” Cook pointed out several examples throughout his childhood:
“Obviously, I think anyone who was alive during the time I lived in the 60s and 70s and grew up during that time, you saw it firsthand. When I was five, John Lewis was beaten on the Edmund Pettus Bridge. When I was eight, the Stonewall rebellion took place, both of which changed the course of time and changed the course of my life.
