S02 Ep: 5 Are you living your life in the spirit of 'LoveWITHAccountability?'
Pops'nAde bow down to an amazing project and turn of phrase: LoveWITHAccountability as they conversate with founder Aishah Shahidah Simmons. Our guest Aishah Shahidah Simmons is an award-winning Black feminist lesbian cultural worker, who, for over 25-years, has examined the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, and sexual violence. Her creative work, published writings, international lectures, and independent scholarship are informed by her lived experiences as a child sexual abuse survivor, adult rape survivor, and Buddhist practitioner committed to healing, accountability and compassionate justice.  The #LoveWITHAccountability® Project emerged from Aishah’s personal incest healing work. Demanding a conversation with her divorced parents about their lack of response to her being sexually abused as a child, Aishah signed "Love WITH Accountability" in virtually every communiqué to them. In doing so, Aishah emphasized that her deep love for her parents could not shield their lack of accountability for the sexual violence she endured as child.
