Watch a talk with the multi-talented Alison Mariella Désir: a founder, a doer, an activist, a connector, and an unapologetically straightforward communicator with a passion for community health. Alison is the author of "Running While Black," the tv host and producer of "Out & Back with Alison Mariella Désir" (now streaming) and the host of "Out & Back's" companion podcast. Alison came to running organically, following a period of depression, when a Black friend and role model trained for and completed a marathon.
