How do we create an education system where EVERY child is given the opportunity to learn and operate in their genius? Well, @andratesham new book “Anti-racism and Universal Design for Learning” is our roadmap. Our conversation is thought provoking and full of wisdom that pushes us all to help “build expressways to success”. While though her work is primarily focused on education, the principles she shares can be used across all systems. Make sure you purchase her book. Give it to educators, organizational leaders, human resource professionals and parents. This is a must read for all anti racism practitioners. #UDL #AntiRacism #Inclusion #PowerSharing #BLM #POC

With so much LOSS and many of us experiencing LACK...loss of jobs, lack of food, loss of homes, lack of healthcare, loss of loved ones....we want to share with our listeners how we have navigated this in the last few weeks.
As we celebrate the life and legacy of Rev. C.T. Vivian and Congressman John Lewis we are reminded that the work that often changes communities and pushes the boundaries of our current society, will not always initially make us immediate heroes, but will eventually leave our mark as cultural icons. This work is necessary so that freedom is not just an idea but a reality for all. It is our consistency in fighting the good fight, doing the hard but good work and getting into "good trouble" that sets the talkers apart from the doers. Our special guest this episode is Monique Worrell, candidate for State Attorney for the 9th circuit. Listen as she informs us of the importance of this role in our criminal justice systems and shares her specific ideas for how we can reform our system to better serve us ALL.
Storytelling is important, and representation MATTERS! Black culture IS STEEPED in oral tradition and now moreso than EVER it is important that WE TELL OUR STORIES via Black media.

Elkin also shares how and where you can find her first documentary, "Faded Conversations" which focuses on Black males and mental health.
