Prayer Edition | Day 16 | The King Family
21 million of us may lose healthcare.  21 million.  Rather than folding into rage, arguing perspectives, or waxing philosophical, let's get in the streets. Join us today, for a special edition of Black History Bootcamp to listen to the words of one of the most brilliant political organizers in history. Dr. King called us to love one another AND demand "a radical redistribution of political and economic power."  He said, "Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health is the most shocking and inhuman.”  In this pivotal moment, as we strengthen our bodies for the days ahead, we'll share the part of his final speech that they do NOT want you to hear.  It's a blueprint for labor organizing, economic withdrawal, direct action, and radical love. "There is a certain kind of fire that no water can put out." Join GirlTrek’s Black History Bootcamp - The Prayer Edition at blackhistorybootcamp.com to receive specially curated emails with prayers, survival tips, speeches + dedicated songs to listen to for each episode. Together we will discover the stories of 21 spiritual warriors. Disclaimer: We do not own the rights to the music played during this broadcast.

Vivica A. Fox Gets Transparent with the Former First Lady of Turks and Caicos Lisa Raye McCoy
This episode is a perfect example of why Vivica A. Fox fell in love with podcasting. She sits down with one of her dearest friends, LisaRaye McCoy, and like every long term relationship there are moments when things could go either way. You'll hear the story of how LisaRaye left Chicago with her baby after feeling abandoned by her family. She decided it was time to pursue her dreams in LA where she soon met Vivica. They became fast, best friends. Lisa's career began to roll and life was good for both. Through tremendous success and some hard times too, the besties went through love and life together. But then these two amazing Queens had a falling out that left them both heartbroken. As fate would have it, after a long separation, they ran into each other in an airport and reconnected on a higher level. Now they're back together working on many different shows and projects including “Cocktails with the Queens” and LisaRaye is continuing her life as a business mogul of LR Home Styles as well as PZI Jeans a LisaRaye Collection.

78 | You’re Worthy – Honoring Your Spiritual Evolution with Lyvonne Proverbs Briggs
Content warning: Mention of sexual trauma and pregnancy loss Today's conversation is about our spiritual evolutions and how that plays into our wellness. Spirituality is individual and for those who grew up in the church, that is often your first and largest spiritual influence. There are also some people who start to approach spirituality differently – people who want to have a hybrid of some of those church practices that they grew up with and some of the spiritual practices they learned about at different points in life. Our guest today is Lyvonne Proverbs Briggs (aka “Pastor Bae”) a body and sex-positive preacher, writer, speaker, and spiritual life coach. Lyvonne is the founder of Beautiful Scars, a healing-centered storytelling agency focused on fostering pleasure and resiliency. She is also the curator of The Proverbial Experience, an Instagram church. Briggs has been featured in ESSENCE, Cosmopolitan, and The Washington Post, and Sojourners named her one of “11 Women Shaping the Church.” Briggs, an NYC native, is currently based in New Orleans, LA. Lyvonne is dedicated to her faith and helping Black women heal their childhood trauma and we’re so grateful for the opportunity to share her story and mission. In this episode, we talk about… * Decolonizing your faith, African spirituality, and having a sense of curiosity * Releasing shame related to sexual trauma * Fostering conversations about our sexuality in our everyday conversations * Trusting your inner knowing because that’s where the power lives * Sensuality vs. sexuality and the ongoing practice of honoring your body * What it means to be a Surthrivor RESOURCES: * Check out Lyvonne’s Website: lyvonnep.com * Follow Lyvonne on Instagram: @lyvonnep * Connect with Lyvonne on Facebook * Follow Lyvonne on Twitter: @lyvonnep * Subscribe to Lyvonne’s YouTube Channel * Subscribe to Lyvonne's Patreon for additional coaching and support * Join Lyvonne's online course 'i'm a Surthrivor' and use the code 'BALANCEDBLACKGIRL' for 16% off Discount Codes: * Organifi | Use the code BBG for 15% off Organifi supplements * Peak and Valley | Use the discount code balancedblackgirl for $5 off your order of adaptogen blends If you like this episode, please leave a rating and review on Apple Podcasts.
