Episode 10 - Marjani Forté-Saunders
In this conversation Marjani speaks about revolutionary Blackness; taping into the prayers that have been prayed for us; the alchemy of Black folks finding our spiritual fortitude and power through our creative energies; the vulnerability of imagining that you can do something; and getting Sun’d in the dance. Crowned a Prayer Warrior early in life by her elders . . . Marjani encourages us to be courageous - to “fail and frolic dopely.” ( #fail and frolic dopely::)).
