What made us devalue Blackness?

This month September 2020, I have had one year with the radio station Kepw.org...My guest Willamette Racism Response Network is with me to discuss lived experience, creating while in crisis, and exploring new ways to heal our community. White conditioning, mental health, and seeing our own value has been a journey.

With the RNC, the shooting of Jacob Blake, death of Chadwick, summer fires-it feels like being Black is even harder than usual. How are we coping?? How do you cope? How can we still see and love each other??

Censored because I’m Black, literally.

FB and IG censored my advert for my merchandise and for my website, stating political tones. It is because my name has Black Girl in it. The commercial has Race Equity. Blackness as a commodity is a foundational sin of this United States, and here it is playing out yet again in 2020. Please join me as I work this out.... BTW, link to my website here where you can see what I'm up to, and where you can buy some unapologetic merchandise. www.blackgirlfromeugene.org --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ayisha-elliott/message

What you didn’t know about growing up Black!

I welcome my guest Kokayi, to the show as we share similar household conversations as we grew up. He is a community leader. He coins himself The community builder, he is an activist. Our households were both unapologetically black households, that lived in this world in proximity to differing cultures, both balancing oppression. Perspective on white pain, and black beauty are explored...join us! --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ayisha-elliott/message

Racism has love? Whats Love got to do with it!?!?!?

Joined by Marcus Holloway, aka m5!! We discuss why the fear and need to hold onto things we don't understand can hinder us from growth and ultimately love. We talk personal journey, ask the question what if racial inequity was just a lack of love or a misuse of an idea of love. How do you recognize healthy love and love that is conditioned, like racism. Racism has love?? depends on who you ask. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ayisha-elliott/message
