    Ep. 5 Your Righteous and Political Black Mind Pt2

    Ep. 5 Your Righteous and Political Black Mind Pt2

    Politics can often be guided by ethics drawn from religion. December’s episode of Real Talk: Black Minds Matter is entitled Your Righteous and Political Black Mind. Religion influences what political party many stand by and what political viewpoints they agree with based on their religious upbringing. There is a power within the church that can shift the narrative of politics for many Black people and also guide them in their times of darkness. Our Co-hosts Andrea Brown and Nia Jones are joined by Rev. Brenda D. White and will discuss the role religion plays in politics and the REAL impact that religious leaders have on the righteous and political Black mind!

    Ep. 3 Oh Black Church...Where art thou?

    Ep. 3 Oh Black Church...Where art thou?

    Oh Black Church...Where art thou? is November’s podcast for Real Talk: Black Minds Matter. Historically, our churches have been the cornerstone of the black community for everything from the civil rights movement to public health awareness (i.e. Red Dress Sunday). It has been said that black people are more likely to look to their Pastor for advice, counseling, and political commentary as it relates to these challenging times. Our Co-hosts Andrea Brown and Nia Jones are joined by Rev. Bryce Jones, Co-Pastor and BMHA Chaplain. This episode discusses the importance of collaboration and the absence of such  between mental health professionals and spiritual leaders as we understand the REAL strengths and limitations of the faith community as it relates to Black mental health.
