With a particular interest in the self-directed education (aka unschooling) movement, Akilah S. Richards and special guest co-hosts will discuss the fears and the fares (costs) of raising liberated children of color in a world that tends to diminish, dehumanize, and disappear them.

Customer Reviews


I love this podcast. It deeply resonates and supports me in my own identity and values. I always feel like I’m sitting on the couch talking to Akilah and the guest like... “Yaaaasssss.” This feeling of connectedness and guidance is rare in my life. As a healer and Scholar and Organizer for Black People... and the mommy of a toddler... as a black woman, I need this. Thank you

What a gift

This podcast has helped our family so much.


These podcasts have given words to my thoughts. I have been trying to figure out what I was feeling about my thought process as an adult before becoming a parent and now that I am a parent of 2 boys I am constantly trying to figure out how to parent without fear in a way that my family doesn't always understand. I am constantly referring others to these episodes and figuring out now what I can DO to help us get to a world with more free thinkers in it. My parenting journey has become so liberating. Thank you Akilah!!
