In this episode of Faith and the Revolution, I speak to my dear friend, Whitney, about being a Black woman in America. This is not a new conversation; in fact, this episode was recorded back in October 2020, and was followed by many more conversations about the experiences of Black women/femmes/queer/trans in America. It feels fitting that as we mourn the death of Breonna Taylor by police a year later, and celebrate Women's History Month, that this episode be released. So, here you go - a gift to you. This episode is in honor of Black women everywhere.
My friend Whitney is a writer from Fort Worth, Texas who believes in magic. She is a beautiful Black alchemist who occasionally creates sweet-smelling healing body products, and also occasionally produces a meditative newsletter called ju-ju.
To my BIPOC family, how many magazines did YOU see on newsstands growing up that centered and celebrated us - our culture, hair textures, skin tone, and overall experience? Well, in case you were wondering if something like that even exists, Andréa Butler has already created it with the publication of "Sesi Magazine."
Andréa Butler is the Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of Sesi Magazine, a magazine that covers the Black girls mainstream. If you're not already aware of this amazing print and online publication that celebrates black girls, you can subscribe to it at this link: https://sesimag.com/subscribe/ and donate here https://bit.ly/30LxGba.

In this solo episode of Faith and The Revolution, I share my sentiments on what the 4th of July means to me (in case you can't already tell by the episode title). I invoke Frederick Douglass' 1852 speech "What, to the Slave, is the Fourth of July?" and tell the quick and easy-to-follow story of how this nation came to be.
In this episode with Rev. Graylan S. Hagler, we discuss how current times are like a page taken out of the playbook itself, i.e., the Bible. Jesus was a rebel back then. What would the prophet do today?
Rev. Hagler is the Senior Pastor at the Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ in Washington, DC (plymouth-ucc.org). He is also an activist and organizer, co-chair of the Poor Peoples Campaign (poorpeoplescampaign.org), mentor and friend.
As COVID-19 stay-at-home orders are being lifted nationwide, there is much to consider as a country, and in our own personal lives. But we can't even begin to think about what's next without engaging our minds, revolutionizing the ways that we think about the world and our place in it.
In this episode of Faith and The Revolution, I invited my friend Farrah Chataigne to join me in a conversation about the things we shouldn’t want to rush back to, post-pandemic.
Farrah Chataigne is a homeschooling mom, content creator and life coach-in-training. She is also a wise Soul who is ahead of our time, and my friend. You can find Farrah, her teaching and her work at “The P.O.W. Solution” on YouTube, and on Instagram and Twitter as @powsolution. For now, take a listen. Farrah had me sitting up straight in my chair for the entire length of the show - this was a powerful conversation.
As we reach a place of surrender and acceptance of where we are in the middle of a health crisis, the one thing you may know for sure - what will guide you through this period of transition - may very well be your intuition. But what does that mean? Join me in discussion with Jamila White of Inspired Jamila. You can connect with Jamila directly through her website - www.inspiredjamila.com - @InspiredJamila on Facebook and @Inspired.Jamila on Instagram. Promo code for Jamila's reading special is "JUPITER."
Dream Liberation is the practice of liberating ourselves from the things that keep us oppressed, by "dreaming" of what it would look like to be liberated from such things entirely. I'd love to hear your thoughts on dream liberation and how you might apply it to your own life or the world-at-large. When we dare dream, we dare to create a new reality.
