Unlearning, Learning, New Pathways

--:--
Our vision for Season 3 is centred around people of colour in Africa and the Diaspora. People of colour continue to suffer from the effects of structural racism and White supremacy. This structural discrimination and the subsequent stigmatisation have inflicted multiple traumas on people of colour that have developed into degenerative, fear-based ways of existing, causing a disconnection between relatives, community, the land and ancestral wisdom.

In this season’s Conscious Conversations, we hope to give listeners tools to increase their self-awareness, shift the beliefs they hold about themselves, shift their values to reflect a philosophy of Ubuntu, and find out how to use their resources to recover, transform and restore themselves, their families and their communities in a regenerative way that will nourish their whole being and strengthen their connection with our Source.

This conversation is hosted by Thebe Montse. Thebe is a communication, media and marketing consultant with a depth of experience across public relations, brand communications, marketing, and advertising. Thebe’s worked with clients across the public and private sectors to deliver results for their businesses, brands, and communities.

Afro/ Black Indigeneity & Sovereignty
