Episode 7: #BlackGirlMagic #BlackBoyJoy

Charlottesville. Its a lot y'all. But we arenot  going to talk about that specifically. Lots of people have said very eloquent things about that. We are talking instead about how we cultivate joy in hard times like this; what we learned from our foremothers and how they expressed love. Comedy. Twerking. Michelle Obama's right to "bare her arms" yep. All of that is in there. We hope it brings you some joy. :)

 Harmonize's Tips for Cultivating and Keeping Joy in Trying times:

  • Don't take the burden on of teaching white folks about race

    • Its not your job to teach a class, they have google too
  • Watch Comedy before bed
  • Trust your own instincts
  • Say, "Thank you" often. Cultivate Gratitude
  • TWERK something!
  • Laugh out loud. Often
  • Look to the children and take delight. They access joy easily, copy them

 

Today's twerking music was the DJ Jubilee Classic "Get It Ready, Ready" which can be purchased here, support the culture:

Kenya's Samba pick of the week is, "E Menina" by Sergio Mendez:

Verse of the week: Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV)

The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing."
