I got to interview Leonardo Lightbourne.
L.T. Bourne is an author, activist and speaker from the Caribbean that writes about life as a man in a world dominated by men, raised by women.
It's Not A Man's World: How I conquered the sins of my father paints a vivid picture of what life is like for a male growing up in a fatherless household. It’s the reflective process of one man’s journey to heal himself from his father’s rejection. It’s a story of love, loss, and insecurities as L.T. fights to become a man in a world that sometimes seemed intent on making him fail. As he reflects on his path and invites readers into his world, he squashes the notion of the ‘macho man’ persona by exposing the truth that there are males who are silently fighting through some of life’s most difficult challenges. L.T. encourages these males to become more vocal about their childhood experiences and vulnerabilities, as it is the only way they will be liberated from their pain. As L.T. learns the importance of conquering his father’s sins, he realizes that it’s not a man’s world after all.
We got to speak about:
His journey to know. How he became who he is today.
What motivates him.
Weaknesses he may have had that he turned into strengths.
Advice he has for the audience.
And much more.
