    Let’s Get Substance For Our Sole

    Senator Turner and new rap artist Phamous (née Robin Lee Dorsey), a gifted lyricist out of Queens NY, unite over the state of hip hop. With throwbacks to what was really good, these two examine the significance of originality, passion versus hustle and if today’s music is brainwashing the substance from our soul. Be sure to listen to the end! “N-Turner” (as Phamous the phraseologist calls her), drops a surprise new track like it’s a Tuesday back in the 90s.

Through this young man’s experience (one of millions), Senator Turner and Chairwoman Brown look at the chilling system of incarceration in this country, the criminalization of Black people, how there has been no effort to change the design of this country AND MORE.

    Let's Resist with Jennifer Farmer

    SNT shares the mic with her friend Jennifer Farmer, the PR Whisperer who has written the best love letter there is, “First & Only: A Black Woman’s Guide to Thriving at Work and in Life.” These two life-long besties share the love in this episode that is all about that – LOVE. Lean in and learn how we can do good and do well; how love of self is one of the grandest forms of resistance out there – especially for Black women; how you can light your soul on fire by being and doing what you love…and how Lucy shoulda been Black. These two humanitarians show Black Girl magic works like hell. Hello Somebody!

    The Peoples Convention

    The Peoples Convention

    For far too long we have watched both corporate-funded political parties pillage and devastate our country, our communities, and our families.

    Now it is time for us to ask: What kind of world do we want to build from the ashes of this pandemic and economic depression?

    One week after the Democratic and Republican national conventions, people from all walks of life will come together to discuss the state of the nation and plans to form a major new political party in America. A party free of corporate money and influence. A people’s party.
    Join us on Sunday, August 30, from 4-7 pm Eastern Time for The People’s Convention.
    The Convention will be digital and broadcast live to YouTube, Facebook and Twitter pages with millions of subscribers and followers.

    Let's Slay the Dragon

    Let's Slay the Dragon

    On July 27th, Medicare For All, which SNT is a large proponent of, was voted down. She’s pissed, she’s fired up, she’s calling on Jesus to help us rise up, to help us unite, to help us get to a day of reckoning that says ‘No’ to a corporatist system that has run amuck. Through a call to us and to progressive organizations, she makes a plea for Choice, Challenge and Change – that we be disruptors to reform and to revolutionize our entrenched system that does harm. She asks us to look at the evils we must abolish short-term (neofascism in the white house) and the long-term (neoliberalism of our nation) and to slay the dragon that is preventing the change to come. Hello Somebody.

    Let's Get Ella Baker with Dr. Barbara Ransby

    Let's Get Ella Baker with Dr. Barbara Ransby

    Our former history professor SNT prophesizes with respected historian, author, activist, intellectual and educator, Dr Barbara Ransby. These two history teachers make an intersectional analysis on where we’ve been and where we’re going by looking specifically at the Black woman’s experience in America and how that affects ALL people. Looking back to our foremothers and sisters like Ella Baker and Anita Hill, Turner and Ransby – bonded in defense of ourselves – present an educational prelude to how we must reimagine society in a fundamental way to see a future that embraces equality across race, class, gender, economics and wealth.
