DeWayne Judd

WE are back in the cypher! Welcome to Audio Nuggets in January ’24 for Episode 26: Part 2–Phenomenon of Whiteness with DaWayne Judd. Another beginning, a new season for many, and for some, and a lot of us; so much work to be done.
Phenomena are occurrences in the natural and human-made world that can be observed and cause one to wonder and ask questions. DaWayne continues to guide our conversation from where he left us in Part 1, educating on the Dred Scott Decision, and kicks off Part 2 by asking listeners “who gets included in whiteness?”
Sit back and embrace the liberation in DaWayne in the vision toward freedom!

Until next time….just keep movin’!

Phenomena of Whiteness

EPISODE 24

DeWayne Judd

Welcome back to the Mining For Gold cypher! In this Black container, we witness and experience how traveling the stoney road toward freedom is a journey trekked with love, resistant abolitionism, dignity, and revolutionary muse makers. If you’ve eavesdropped on the political analysis, you’ve come to know that on Audio Nuggets we strive to bend the arc on 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.

Audio Nugget’s anchors ’23 with one of the most liberated voices around. You will have the luxury of discovering DaWayne Judd in Episode 24: Phenomena of Whiteness. Phenomena are occurrences in the natural and human-made world that can be observed and cause one to wonder and ask questions. DaWayne will guide our conversation in ways that help to excavate why we find ourselves steeped in the religion of race.

This political analysis can only be developed through a continuous churning and denying the lies that have been told to our people. The “Phenomena of Whiteness” uncovers meaning, sense-making and occurrences that have been forgotten. Or at least, not thought of as variables that drive our contemporary relationships with one another. We dive heart first into the multilayered contracts that have been stamped from the beginning.

In the first few moments of this drop, we are reminded of the 2023 journey.
We are grateful to those who graced us each episode with their principled struggle. Our guests gifted us with the emotive energy that’s only found in gold. Because gold is indestructible. As were our people. Gold is a source of life, creation, and culture for bodies of African descent. They pulled from the teachings of those who sacrificed themselves so that we can pass a new word.

Until next time…in ’24.

Love and Liberation

EPISODE 23

Keshia Adeniyi-Dorsey

Welcome to Audio Nuggets, right here in the cypher, we are honored to be joined by Keshia Adeniyi-Dorsey for Episode 23: Love and Liberation.

Keshia has advocated and served as a family defender for thousands of families who have been ensnarled by family policing and the Civil Death Penalty, commonly known as TPR.  Keshia is a human being who enjoys spending time with her husband and beautiful baby girl.

In this episode, the audience is gifted with the humanness of an abolitionist. Keshia shares that her goal as a family defender is to value and protect sacred family bonds and lineage.  Keshia illustrates her love of Black families and that she gifts herself with liberation! She is true to self and acts in LOVE. And by glimpsing liberation, Keshia loves her Black people, and sees family’s full humanity.

The conversation deepens to touch on the time of the year that we have embarked on of gratitude and resolution, and Keshia is reminded that “where life is precious, life is precious.” Keshia shares that she gives herself extra love and makes sure to give others extra love. Our current family policing system where destruction and violence to Black families is happening, love is absent and can’t exist. We can live the impact that acts of love and compassion can have on practice.  Keshia leaves listeners with a question, “Is this system good enough for my own child?”

Until next time…the work of love is never done!
