    Let's Embrace Loss and Healing with Marisa Renee Lee

    Let's Embrace Loss and Healing with Marisa Renee Lee

    Author, Marisa Renee Lee speaks with Senator Turner about healing, love and loss during a grieving experience. Marisa talks about grief, healing oneself and confirming that it's ok to maintain a spiritual relationship with a loved one that you've lost - that is a form of healing. While in the process of redefining her personal grief process, Marisa wrote a book called Grief is Love (April 2022). Grief is Love gives us the most uplifting and personal story of Marisa’s journey. As we read through her experiences she hopes to help others who are navigating through loss and healing.

    Let's Receive Our Brilliance with Sherlynn Allen-Harris

    Let's Receive Our Brilliance with Sherlynn Allen-Harris

    Senator Turner speaks with historian, educator, and author who is currently an Adjunct History Professor at Cuyahoga Community College, Sherlynn Allen-Harris.  They take a moment to discuss how the status quo and legislators have the power to encourage change instead of enforce the unbalanced racial power structures that affect all communities, especially the Black community. Senator Turner and Sherlynn lift up the fact that we must not allow uncomfortably distract us from teaching about our country’s history - the ugly and not so cute. With talks of regression, Sherlynn lays out how capitalism and the desire for profit plays a significant role in our society.

My new favorite podcast

I absolutely love the content and care and concern of Hello Somebody. Being a Black girl from Cleveland trying to change the landscape of education in Greater Cleveland, it’s amazing to hear our Senator Nina Turned speaking truth into power. #clepride

Senator Turner is my president.

I cannot wait to see what neoliberal corporate democrats will try if you are our 2024 progressive pick for president. They can’t handle it! The torch is yours now! We are with you all the way.

Racial demagoguery

It’s funny how successful black people go out of there way to make sure under privileged black people believe they can’t succeed with all this white supremacy.
