    Interview part 3 with Lisa, Aaron, and Porsha

    I want to invite you all to enjoy our last interview with Lisa Littlebird. In this third episode profound questions are asked such as "In what ways do you dominate Black bodies for your own protection?"  This question is an example of the depth of conversations and questions we hold in this episode. We hope this is a resource specifically for the song community as we challenge ourselves to hold People of the Global Majority with more skill and care. Much Love, Reach for Life.
