myah overstreet mining for gold interview

Welcome to the cypher, right here on Audio Nuggets! On Audio Nuggets we strive to bend the arc of non-linear modes through conversations that tug and pull from the best of who we are. We give ourselves rooted permission to tell a collective story of the principled struggle for liberation. We are filled with joy and honored to be joined by Myah Overstreet for Episode 35: To Be Invisible—A True Narrative.

Myah Overstreet is a filmmaker and journalist. Her area of focus is on the intersection of culture and racial inequities among marginalized communities. She is dedicated to amplifying bold, untold stories. Just two weeks ago, Myah’s documentary “To Be Invisible” was published on The New Yorker site. The film follows the journey of Alexis and Kelley as they demand the return of their children from the family policing system in North Carolina.

Shining light and love on Black women was always what Myah wanted to focus her work on. In this episode, we unpack Myah’s journey to using film and journalism to tell the true narrative of reproductive justice rights of Black women, and the policing of bodies–the story that is not talked about. Myah shares the evolution of the film, “To Be Invisible”, and how she joined with mothers and activists in the movement to abolish family policing to tell the story. Myah brings life and love to the film to magnify what’s been hidden. Every story that is told in this true narrative is getting us closer to a new world!

mirium mack

We are back in the cypher, right here on Audio Nuggets! We are honored to be joined by Miriam Mack, a co-struggler and friend, for Episode 34: Critical Connections–THE Imperative.

Miriam Mack is the Policy Director for The Bronx Defenders’ Family Defense Practice, and an advocate and activist for racial and reproductive justice. The Bronx Defenders are actively redefining public defense by challenging the dominant narrative of save and rescue, as they root themselves in the principled and broader struggle for freedom.

This conversation unpacks the beauty of base-building in the movement to abolish carcerality and systemic violence, right relationships, and the critical connections that are our driving force in practicing new worlds. We grapple with what happens if we’re harmed, and Miriam reminds listeners of the deep and very real urgency for imagining and building. Listen to be captivated!

Joyce James

Welcome to the cypher! On Audio Nuggets, we give ourselves rooted permission to tell a collective story of the principled struggle for liberation and freedom. We are honored to welcome Joyce James to the cypher for Episode 32: In The Fight to Undo Racism.

Joyce James has been leading and supporting anti-racism and justice in multiple systems and institutions across the country for almost three decades.
In this episode, respect is given by Joyce and MFG to The People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond (PISAB) for the education and political analysis they have gifted so many with through their principles, teachings, and organizing.

Joyce unravels the narratives about people that we have bought into, and the lies we have been taught. Through good teaching and teachers, Joyce illustrates the cornerstone fact; racism is so deeply embedded in all of our systems and institutions, that to truly undo this racism, means a lifetime commitment to the fight. We are grateful to march alongside Joyce and so many others who embody justice and liberation for the people, on the long road to freedom!
