Medicine for the resistance is a podcast sharing Indigenous Knowledge from the Original Peoples of Turtle Island and the Africans of the Black diaspora. Hosted by Patty Krawec, an Anishnaabekwe with roots in Lac Seul First Nation and feet firmly planted in the Niagara Region, and Kerry Goring, a Black woman whose roots come from Western Africa and the Caribbean with feet planted in Niagara and Toronto. Every day racialized people find ways to push back against the dominant white culture. By telling our stories, our shared histories, the ways in which we hold onto what our ancestors saved for us we seek to provide medicine to those who resist .. making them stronger. The victim narrative is over. The days of hiding and living in secret are over. The resistance is real and it will be beautiful.
||CleanInterview with Kwame Pitts: Womanist||Let me explain this one more time. I am a Womanist, not a feminist. I am for the complete and utter Liberation of My Peoples of the African Diaspora, which is VAST. I am for the uplifting of all Indigenous and Aboriginal Peoples because we are forever chained by the common thread of oppression and racism that we are in battle daily together to break and demolish. I am NOT here for any co-opting by any feminists or questioning when we as Black Women express ourselves for the Liberation of Our People. #Womanist #BlackHistoryMonth||5/19/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
