ST Podcast Ep. 55: We Stand With The Resistance. Black Lives Matter

ST Podcast Ep. 55: We Stand With The Resistance. Black Lives Matter

“The opposite of a hero is not a villain. It’s a bystander”

-Matt Langdon (Founder of The Hero Construction Company)

On this episode, Dr. Scarlet and Dustin discuss and condemn the systematic racism and police brutality ravaging our world. The senseless death of George Floyd along with so many other black individuals has got to stop. Enough is enough. This is our call to stand up for change and equality. This is our call to aid members of our community who are dying and need our help. We see you. We support. We stand with you. Black Lives Matter.

Derrick Dawson – Dismantling Racism Re-release

~We decided to re-release this episode because we couldn’t think of a better voice to head during this time. We have chosen to mute ourselves and support #amplifymelanatedvoices through June 7th. 

“We have inherited a system and there’s nothing we can do about it except acknowledge that and dismantle it. But if we don’t acknowledge it, then we are actually maintaining [it].” ~Derrick Dawson

A conversation that eloquently connects the dots between capitalism and systemic racism? Straight talk about our American way of life and the foundation of white supremacy upon which it was built? Yes, please, to both! 

Derrick Dawson, co-program coordinator of the Regional Organizing for Anti-Racism, aka Chicago Roar, sheds light on the myriad ways white supremacy continues to fester and flourish. Using the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as metaphor and proving ground, Derrick hits our collective compliance with his high-powered truth rays. He exposes us to the vicious strategies employed by corporations and power-brokers hell-bent on destroying our relationship to our planet, our communities, and ourselves. Once you see the light, I guarantee you won’t be able to look away.  

Derrick Dawson is a member of the AntiRacism Commission of the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago, and served as its Co-Chair for three years. He is the Training Manager at the Chicago law firm of Barack Ferrazzano Kirschbaum & Nagelberg in Chicago, and is a graduate student and teaching assistant in English Composition at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago. Derrick was also a broadcaster and journalist in the United States Navy, where he served for eight years on ships in Asia and the Pacific.

The UNNI Podcast – w/ Brandon Johnson

“I’m Angry. I’m Hurt. This Is Difficult.”

Brandon Johnson MHW from Baltimore City, U.S., joins the UNNI Podcast Guest list. Brandon shares his passion for prevention work in Faith-Based Communities, Black Communities, and the empowerment of young people. Host Bianca McCall doesn’t hold back, while asking the tough questions — How does the Black Community achieve health and wellness, when there is such a disparity in health equity? How does the Black Community maintain hope, when many are repeatedly traumatized, with almost daily view of racially-motivated murders; by police, and other bigoted groups of people? Brandon shares valuable resources for all who are done “watching” and ready to act in a way which promotes unity and incentivized wellness for survivors with lived experience.

Conscious Parenting Revolution : Katherine Winter-Sellery

Katherine Winter-Sellery
‘A belief is not merely an idea the mind possesses; it is an idea that possesses the mind’
Growing up in a blended family has given me a unique insight into the challenges children face. I grew up with a sister Melanie and brother Chris from my mom’s previous marriage and a sister, Nancy, on my father’s side. As well as my sister Heidi from their marriage.

Spending my early years growing up in New Orleans, Louisiana, in America’s Deep South, I saw first hand the racism and division that was polluting that part of the US. My father, an entrepreneur, decided to move us to Colorado. We moved several times so he could work on his businesses. Meanwhile, my mother was very independent. My lively upbringing and family dynamic enabled me to see as a child. You need to be seen and heard.
It was when I was 16, I lost my brother Chris to suicide. This devastating event impacted all of our family. And looking back, it also sewed the seeds for my drive to look at how children and parents can learn to communicate in a different dynamic. I could see the relationship my mother had with my brother, and his struggles were connected. His relationship with my dad, his step-father, was not healthy. And it set me on the…………

110 – Traveling the Light Path with Monika Black

“The whole system was created to keep you distracted onto a battlefield. You could not have been put on this wonderful journey called life to fight. That could not be what we are here to do.” ~Monika Black 

What do you get when a leadership maximizer and the Wounded Healer get together to discuss light and shadow, happiness and shame? A roadmap to joy and an invitation to claim your agency, naturally! 

Besides being an amazing human, Monika Black, PhD., is a positive psychology expert who’s shifted to coaching, a space she says allows her to live and lead with authenticity.

Pick an -ism (capitalism, racism, sexism, colonialism) and drill down to its essence, to the core of shame and pain. That’s where adherents to and victims of the dark -isms find themselves, existing in the shadows. The -isms take away individual agency and force victims to work from a deficit. 

Monika sees her role as a guide out from under dark power structures. 

“I can’t dispel the shadows,” she said, “but in the light, they are irrelevant.” Her words read like a mantra and, in many ways, that’s Monika’s work distilled to its most vital and pure sentiment. She’s here to show her clients how they can address the shadows and ultimately reclaim the gifts of inner lightness and joy.
