Welcome back, good listeners!  We are back in the cypher with Tewabech Genet Stewart for the much-anticipated Episode 17: Part 2 – Reconcile With Terminating The Institution’s Rights.

Part 2 deepens the frame into the pains of growth and the developmental process. Tewabech uses her liberated voice to gift listeners with her experience of having her orientation challenged. And that it takes people and collectivism to heal.

Tewabech reveals a crafted framework of principles of a re-invented institution that supports families, while discontinuing harmful practices.  The ideas are rooted in a clear understanding of plantation ethos; that calls for moving families from the field to the house.

Tewabech lives her grounded truth, is disciplined in reconciliation and atonement, all to be prepared for the mission of the healing and justice-centered work that she knows is required of her. It is time for DCF to have their rights terminated!

Until next time…

EPISODE 16

Victor Sims

Audio Nuggets is honored to drop a unique and special, Fathers Day ’23 edition, right here in the cypher. We welcome Victor Sims for Episode 16: Celebrating Black Fatherhood.

Victor Sims is a son, brother, husband and now a father to a little girl, named Harleigh. Victor, like far too many Black children, has been impacted by Florida’s foster care system. Victor’s work includes helping to improve children’s experiences when they are removed from their parents. Victor is set to release a book this summer, “The Day I Stopped Crying”.

The conversation is rooted in the transformation of Black fathers from being “the impacted”, to being leaders that influence change and know the value of co-design with people. All while challenging the ideology that Black skin has never been the issue, that it is racism that is the issue.

Victor gifts the audience with vulnerability in sharing his deepest insights on what racism has cost him, revealing the immense cost of stripping away his identity. The conversation deepens to unhook the violent destructiveness of family separation that has plagued generations upon generations of Black families.
Victor also shares the joys of liberation he experiences by living on purpose, with a purpose.

Listeners experience Victor’s journey of healing, liberation, and belonging. A journey that is wrapped in truth not being absolute, a journey of grieving ancestral blood lines, and embracing Black fatherhood as he travels the path toward racial justice, liberation, and belonging for Black families.

tewabech genet stewart

Welcome back good listeners to the cypher.  Audio Nuggets is honored to share this space with Tewabech Genet Stewart for Episode 15- Part 1: Reflections and Truth.

Tewabech Genet Stewart, an Ethiopian-American, was born and raised in Liberia, West Africa. Tewabech spent twenty-two years in Florida’s child welfare system, and now she advocates for justice-centered practices that support families. Currently she co-chairs the Hillsborough County Anti-Racism and Healing Workgroup, which seeks to confront racism, while advancing justice, liberation and belonging within Florida’s child welfare system.

Tewabech shares nuggets of her becoming as she strategizes with historical occurrences. The conversation touches on the impact of family policing, how parents are stripped of their liberties, and how false narratives and anti-Blackness are baked into the institution.  Tewabech reveals her journey of unraveling the harsh realities of child protection and the harms that are perpetuated and created under the guise of “protecting children”.  

Tewabech shares how she embraces the sheer necessity of being grounded in truth when confronting racism as a leader. Truth-telling is also the key to unlocking her own healing, liberation and making an honest appraisal of how we have arrived here.

Stay tuned for Part II, when Tewabech returns to the cypher to share her dreaming and imagination with us.  Until then….
