changing the Narrative- Ep. 2, From Fairytale to Feminism: A Black Girl in 3 Acts

CTN_Ep_2_podbean_Fairytale.png

 Episode 2 of our collaboration with The Social Justice Learning Institute is the identity episode, where every girl finds her path. In these three stories, from the optimism of childhood to the independence of womanhood, and all the trials and joys in between, we meet the real fairy godmothers in the form of friends, grandmas, and moms.

Act 1: Blu's Fairytale - Jessica Diamfimpa's modern fairytale follows a classic princess problem-follow your heart or your duty? How do you code your heart's desire? 

Act 2: The Girl Percieves - Things may be tough in South Central, but Chassydi Crane is her own built in cheer squad. With and open heart and open mind, she shares her own unique all American high school experience.

Act 3: The Woman - From Inglewood to Loyala Marymount,  Dominique Williams finds she is more Dorothy than Cinderella-there's no place like home! The power was hers all along.

Changing the Narrative- Episode 1, The Urban Entrepreneur

IMG_5294.jpg

Welcome to the first episode of Connectopod's collaboration with The Social Justice Learning Institute! These six episodes were created with the youth of Inglewood and other parts of South LA to tell a more nuanced story of their community and experiences than they see in the media. 

With a broad  age range from middleschool to college, the podcasters of this series share an indepth view of the world as they see it. 

So let's begin!

Marcus Pickens is motivated. How do you create a successful internet start up when all of the odds are against you? Find out what it takes to be an Urban Entreprenuer in this episode.

Jonathon Zeno starts us off with a call to remember our power.
