Get ready for the history lesson you NEVER got as a kid!
Black History Before America: Religion
RELIGION. What was it like before slavery? What are your TRUE ancestral roots? And what does Vodou have to do with the Black Panther movie? Our special guest, Dr. Kyrah Malika Daniels is a Harvard trained scholar of African and African Diaspora religions and she's here to set the record straight about RELIGION BEFORE AMERICA. Most of what you've heard is just plain WRONG.
Forward: How We Can ALL Support the Movement
In this final installment of our Black History Month series called ‘Forward,’ Justin revisits some of the most powerful and impactful advice from his interview with Black Lives Matter founder, Alicia Garza on how we can push for change in an authentic, strategic and effective way. Justin reminds us all that ACTION is essential for any type of progress and that we must involve ourselves in ways big and small to support the social change movement, to flex our collective power economically to push our agenda, and to use our voices to make our community a key player in the political process that drives this country FORWARD.
Justin's new book STAY WOKE
CONFESSION: This is not really a meditation book.
Yes, you’re going to learn everything you need to know about meditation, but if you came looking for a typical guide to mindfulness, you’re in the wrong place.
We are modern people in a high-tech world. We have First World problems and long to-do lists. And if you grew up in the struggle—overcoming homophobia, sexism, trauma, shame, depression, poverty, toxic masculinity, racism, or social injustice—you need a different type of meditation . . . one that doesn’t pretend the struggle doesn’t exist.
Whether you’ve tried meditation but it never sticks, or you’ve heard about it but never gave it a shot, Justin guides you step by step in creating a custom meditation ritual that fits in with your busy (and sometimes messy!) modern life. Stay Woke gives people of all genders, identities, colors, religions, ages, and economic backgrounds the tools to stop wasting time, overcome self-doubt, and wake up to the lives we were really born to live.PURCHASE BOOK
