The Good Samaritan

9/19/2019

I use a Ndebele proverb which personifies the importance of having good people around you - friends or family to talk to, who can help you up and be responsive when you are down. I read from the Bible to outline where the term Good Samaritan comes from.....and I share a recent experience of when I was low in mood as a result of covert racial prejudice. Snapshots from research which I undertook suggest this is a well researched area but it is not well resourced - for help...

Political Chaos or Change!

9/12/2019
More
I use a Shona proverb "...to confuse matters in a court case so much that no-one understands what is going on!!" I share a little spicy wisdom to people wishing eternal damnation to Robert G. Mugabe. Then I go on a divergent path to talk about the xenophobic inspired Brexit ....and I put to rest my focus on the black-on-black crime taking place in South Africa - I am completely in favour of Julias Malema's speech!! This episode is a lay woman's attempt to analyse this past weeks politics....

Dear South African Leaders.....!!

9/5/2019
More
I use a Ndebele proverb which basically gets lost in my ranting about how the black-on-black crime taking place in South Africa is grinding my gears. I have no hate or anger towards any people but the ACTIONS of some very misguided people!! I share examples of where I think the the root cause might be - leadership!!! I briefly share examples of I how I have previously been exposed to this "Xenophobia". insta @a_mixed_tribe_black_girl

Variations of Feminism!!

Season 1 FINALE • I read from the game changing book by Stephanie E. Jones - Rogers "They were her property. White women as slave owners in the American south". I also share a Shona proverb - on why the interruption of Black African history cannot and should not be forgotten. As well as an intro / my short opinion on Feminism!! I believe there are some aspects - which unite Black African Feminists with White Feminists but there is the well known white (usually Eurocentric middle class)...

Manhood is not determined by age, status or position.

8/22/2019
More
I use a Ndebele proverb to explain to my niece and nephew why having an understanding of colonisation / the men behind colonisation is important, in 2019 - not just for black people but for society at large. Power, money and a domination of others has been a driving force behind how some men through out history have defined manhood or been seen as the epitome of manhood. Colonisation and enslaving of others purely because of the difference in colour of the skin - is one factual example of...

A conversation with my Niece and Nephew!!!

8/15/2019
More
BONUS Ep - 12th August was Heroes Day in Zim. I had a conversation with my niece, 4years old and my nephew, 7years old - about the meaning of the day. Heroes day commemorates the liberation struggle in Zimbabwe against white colonisers from England - besides the lies that were told to steal our country the colonisers managed to divide the people. We also talk a little but about the events leading to when white farmers were forced of land they agreed to share/give back. #weMustNotForget

Destiny Pt. 2

8/8/2019
More
Continuing from last weeks episode - I use a Shona proverb which translates to "to climb a mountain needs guts". I get a little bit personal and possibly controversial and talk about three things which include : the decision to wait to have children, being a strategist and being ok with being aggressive - for the "cause". These are 3 traits I share with Queen Lozikeyi Dlodlo - a Ndebele Queen, Black African feminist and political strategist! I will read from a book about her life by Marieke...

I introduce Queen Lozikeyi Dlodlo - a Ndebele Queen, Black African feminist and immigration strategist! Despite the treacherous deception by the white colonisers she was instrumental in safeguarding the survival of the Matebele people. I will read from a book about her life by Marieke Faber Clarke with Pathisa Nyathi and also share...

There is no substitute for natural beauty!!!

7/25/2019
More
This episode is based on a Shona proverb which highlights the fact that, in Zim natural hair was actually being "protected" through various policies in our education system. When I moved to London - I soon learnt that the Afro/natural hair movement is a revolution against the discrimination of Black women's afro, kinky or coiled & natural hair!! I will read from Emma Dabiri's book - DO NOT TOUCH MY HAIR. @a_mixed_tribe_black_girl #inspireTheVillage

I will aim to inspire you to start thinking about burial planning. I will refer to Chinua Achebe’s “Things Fall Apart” - to share an example of African culture and response to death. I am grateful for the internet. Scarlett Johansson interview.
