Thank you for highlighting Black Quakers

The episode with Ayesha Imani and learning about the history of Black Quakers has transformed my faith and nudged me to return home to Quakerism. I attended a Quaker school growing up and have always felt grounded by my Quaker faith, but I never named or declared it. I’ve struggled to reconcile the tension between feeling a strong sense of belonging as a Friend while being simultaneously othered as a Black person from a working class background in white spaces. Ayesha’s thoughtful and nuanced reflections resonated and really excited me about joining Black Quaker communities and finding a spiritual home. I absolutely love this podcast.

Always interesting & engaging

Who knew a podcast about Quakers could be fresh and interesting?! I learn something every time. I guess Quakers still have something to say in these times. Also, love Georgia’s voice and style as a podcaster.
