Back on June 14, 1978, a very fateful day in which some suggest to be the first day an “I can’t breathe” event occurred. Public Figure and Bishop Lamor Miller Whitehead’s father Arthur Miller, a politician and community activist, was beaten and strangled by 16 police officers and resulted in his unjust death. Bishop Whitehead was only 6 weeks old at the time.
Bishop Whitehead was born in Brooklyn, New York, and was raised in a single mother household as a result of that murder. Not an ideal situation for anybody, but the now Bishop tried to make the best of it and ultimately looked to follow in his father’s footsteps as a social activist, community leader, motivational speaker, and entrepreneur.
Bishop Whitehead is a jack of trades and through his connection with God, he is able to spread powerful and meaningful messages through multiple communities. In 2013, Whitehead actually founded Leaders of Tomorrow Ministry in Brooklyn and that ministry has grown immensely since then. The group focuses on a lot of different areas including spiritual liberty, education development, cultural exposure, political activation, economic awareness and strengthening.
People have grown to love and back up Bishop Whitehead including hip hop artists Fivio Foreign and Dusty Locane, comedian FatBoy and the Queen of Dancehall Spice. His realism and abilities as a leader and preacher are unmatched. Bishop Whitehead is looking to things up a notch and possibility become Brooklyn’s next Borough President. For the foreseeable future, he’ll always be at the forefront of change.
