    Black Love: A Return Home with Dianne Stewart

    Black Love: A Return Home with Dianne Stewart

    Today’s History Story: Black Love Non-Monogamy
    Dianne Stewart is back to talk about Black love. We’re continuing the conversation about Deconstructing Black Love so that we can rebuild and reconnect with spirituality, heritage, and how we love ourselves and each other outside of white supremacy. In that interview, we learned a lot about love, particularly how as African descended people, love is more than romantic. It’s heritage. It's community. It’s us.
    Dr. Stewart is a professor of religion and African American studies at Emory University with a focus on religion, culture and African heritage in the Caribbean and the Americas. She’s written several books including Black Women, Black Love: America's War on African American Marriage and Three Eyes for the Journey: African Dimensions of the Jamaican Religious Experience.

    The Erasure of Black Disabled Voices with Anita Cameron

    The Erasure of Black Disabled Voices with Anita Cameron

    White supremacist erasure and whitewashing of Black disabled people’s voices and stories has happened for centuries now—and for centuries, too, ableists have abused our disabled ancestors. This violent erasure bleeds into our present--including in our own community. To give us more insight, we'll be talking to Anita Cameron. As a Black, disabled person, Anita has dedicated almost 40 years to community organizing and making sure that folks with disabilities have equitable rights in society.
