We delve into her family’s tie to the Civil Rights movement and her efforts to empower her community. I found talking with...

Youth are highly perceptive and they spot sincerity as easily as they spot phoniness. Therefore it is essential that when working with them in capacities such as teachers, mentors, clinicians or coaches we must always: Be Loving Be Non-Judgmental Be a Role Model We must remind ourselves that it is a privilege to be positioned to impact the potential within our young people.

(Ep 24)Life and Death in the Kitchen Part 2

5/3/2018
More
I thought this subject worthy enough to have a part 2. In this episode, I share the benefits of eating less, avoiding non-nutritive food items, fasting, eating fresh fruits and vegetables and being mindful about our food choices. *Train our stomachs and retrain our appetites. *Eat less-the more we eat, the more wear and tear we put on our stomachs and digestive system. *Fasting-Fasting gives our bodies an opportunity to rest and purify. Not only is fasting a natural mood stabilizer, it...

(Ep 22)Drive Time Thoughts: After Starbucks-Will We Protect Or Produce

4/19/2018
More
This ‘Drive Time” episode comes on the heels of the Starbucks controversy in which two black men were arrested while waiting for their associate. Here, I confront us with our responsibility to ourselves and the indignities we suffer when we neglect them. Also, do we have the will to use our trillion plus in buying power to establish our own economic base? Or will we remain at the Rich Man’s Gate? If you’ve seen the footage, the protests of today in 2018 resemble much of what we’ve seen in...

(S1 Ep21) "Qualifying" for Equality

4/12/2018
More
Build your own table before demanding a seat at the table of another. For decades we have petitioned to be treated with equity by white America; but have we enjoined equal labor, commitment, investment, love and governance among our own? This conversation challenges us. What have we done amongst ourselves, FOR OURSELVES - except sport and entertainment - that would urge others to welcome us into their society? We must study the successful operations of other groups-and model their self...

(S1 Ep 18) Drive Time Thoughts: Monique and Netflix

3/22/2018
More
I’m trying something new this episode so I’m calling this one, ‘Drive Time Thoughts: Monique and Netflix.’ In this episode, I question our public response to the Monique/Netflix issue. What does it mean to ‘Support Black’? And should ‘Support Black’ exclude personally disparaging our own in the public? This episode was recorded during my commute; I thought it’d be a cool idea to share my ‘Drive Time Thoughts’ with listeners. The audio isn’t as great as when recording in my studio office...

Welcome to episode 10! What a mini milestone in the history of Nurah Speaks (I celebrate ALL victories and strongly encourage you to do the same!) Thanks to the listeners for your continued support! In this solo episode I question what it means to be a natural---well, for me at least. I’ve been told (more times than I can count)that I am a ‘natural’ public speaker. But if you knew me years ago (or were in my 8th grade English class), this might seem the furthest from the truth. Listen in...

Every group has the responsibility to advance their interests. But are we advancing ours?
