We close out the first season with a very special interview with Akilah S. Richards. Akilah is founder of Raising Free People Network and host of Fare of the Free Child podcast. Her work utilizes audio and written mediums to amplify the ways that unschooling in particular, is serving as healing grounds and liberation work for Black, Indigenous/Native, and People of Color communities. She is also the author of the book Raising Free People: Unschooling as Liberation and Healing Work which examines the ways that her relationships to blackness, decolonization, and healing work all combine to form relationships and enable community-healing strategies rooted in an unschooling practice. In this episode, Akilah shares how her experience as a mother has helped her reframe her own experiences and how she creates more healthy, consent-based, intergenerational relationships. Danellia and Akilah also talk about how they rethink discipline and learning.
