In case you missed this wonderful conversation - today's episode is, "Being an Activist and Author with EbonyJanice."
This episode is a re-air of our conversation from April, and we are celebrating the recent publishing of her new book, available now!
“I have no dream job, I do not dream of labor.” - James Baldwin
"Womanist is to feminist as purple is to lavender" - Alice Walker
If you're interested in womanism and feminism, the connection between religion and authority, activism, racial justice, and being at ease - this conversation is it!
In this episode we also talk about EbonyJanice's new book, and how her personal life and love of romance were a part of her book writing process.
Music: (Intro) incapable by shamgang + (Outro) Drumagade by Guustaav
We ask questions:
- What does it mean to be an activist?
- How can embracing softness be a form of activism?
- What does it mean to decolonize authority?
