Shadiin and Delma discuss the horrors of Ukraine, what it brings up for them-including how this moment mirrors so many others. From the systemic assault of women to the systemic racial bias in it's coverage, our hosts grapple with what it means to be a human consuming information that deeply impacts our sense of safety, well-being, and our sense of responsibility to this global community we call home.
Our hosts then welcome Chief Curator of The Emergence Network, Dr. Bayo Akomolafe. A speaker, author, fugitive neo-materialist, com-post-activist, public intellectual and Yoruba poet-Dr. Akomolafe offers a series of fundamental questions about the nature of justice, race, privilege, failure, and experimentation--For instance: Do we strengthen the role of oppression by seeking recognition from the very systems we seek to create? Is justice enough? What do we lose when we live in our privilege?
