Play • 53 min

On the Did you know Segment… Sunni and Lisa discuss one of the hottest topics on social media, former President Barack Obama’s audible thoughts on the “Defund the Police” term.  Let’s be clear, he doesn’t have issue with the movement, his concern is the ability of the movement to reach far and wide.  According to stltoday.com (St. Louis Post-Dispatch), “Obama is right. The “Defund the Police” slogan just makes reform more difficult.”  Social Media has been up in arms over his comments…Tune in to hear the entire discussion! 

On this episode of Active Allyship…it’s more than a #hashtag! Sunni and Lisa converse with Rozella “Rosie” Kennedy, Project Founder of the Brave Sis Project and inspired leader.  What a remarkable woman!  As evidenced by her upbringing, she has lots of layers and textures, she’s most definitely a package of personality!  You already know that Rosie shares what she was marinated in as a child on into her adulthood ~ living in a space of duality.  And right on cue, the discussion of assimilating and code-switching comes into play (hint). Great Conversation!

The Brave Sis Project, Rosie shares her journey to discovering the need for and developing this journey journal for women of color. It’s very engaging, very!  She shares her experience looking for a planner and tada!  So many unsung heroes representing women of color …it was created for the people she knows. So multidimensional!  Rosie shares her vision for the mission and future of the Brave Sis Project and the next exciting ventures for Brave Sis!  You can hear the excitement and Love in Rosie’s voice when she shares the birth and future of her “third daughter”!

Rosie also shares how Kathy Caprino’s book"Breakdown, Breakthrough: The Professional Woman’s Guide to Claiming a Life of Passion Power and Purpose,"  helped her to get back on track when she wasn’t sure which way to turn, feeling a sense of hopelessness. What a rebirth!  Phenomenal conversation about arriving! Being fearless!  Moving forward in spite of… the magic negress mindset!
