EPISODE 32

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!

April gifts Black parents with the wisdom to question everything, educate yourself, know your rights… because you are not the problem, but rather part of the solution. Don’t believe the hype. Don’t believe the lie!

And before we leave…April drops “True Insight” as an expression of her full humanity, power, and liberation. She sings her song!

EPISODE 30

aubrey edwards luce

We are back in the cypher with our anchor #4 for FREEDOM in Black History ’24. We are joined by Aubrey Edwards-Luce for Episode 30: Dreaming Sanctuary.

In Dreaming Sanctuary, Aubrey moves us to become filled. Filled with dreaming; filled with an energy to chase the vision of freedom, filled with a drive to nurture connections with others, and truly filled with a desire to love all people. Sanctuary is best defined as a place where someone or something can be protected or safe from being chased or hunted; to live and be protected. Aubrey illustrates that there is safety and sanctuary in relationships that are knitted through love and give us an opportunity to see and lean into full humanity. Aubrey’s contributions to freedoms are palpable with how she leads by listening, and how she shows up in love by building a culture of truth-telling in her ecosystem.

Throughout this February, the cypher has brought you Radically Practical with jasmine Sankofa, Loyalty to Truth with Dawn Blagrove, Notes For Freedom with Dr. Jessica Pryce and Dreaming Sanctuary with Aubrey Edwards-Luce; 4 Black women, 4 for Freedom. They have all made clear the distinction necessary for freedom and liberation as a lifestyle, not only a goal.

EPISODE 29

jessica pryce

Audio Nuggets is back in the cypher and expanding Black History with #3 for FREEDOM. Episode 29: Notes For Freedom with Dr. Jessica Pryce will push you to embrace a reckoning.

For over 15 years, Dr. Pryce has worked with multiple angels in child protection, encompassing direct practice, academia, policymaking and research.

This episode unpacks just a few of Dr. Pryce’s contributions to freedom and liberation through her writing and memoir that is set to be released as we commemorate 60 years of civil rights legislation for Black bodies.

Broken: Notes of a Former Caseworker; Transforming Child Protective Services, is a former caseworker’s searing, clear-eyed investigation of the child welfare system—from foster care to incarceration—that exposes the deep-rooted biases shaping the system, witnessed through the lives of several Black families.

Dr. Pryce graces the audience with truth-telling vulnerability, wisdom, and the story of her personal journey of witnessing the humanness in Black parents.

After Dr. Jessica Pryce, Aubrey Edwards-Luce will anchor us with Dreaming of Sanctuary.
