Let’s Talk About… Culturally Relevant Narratives
Aug 28, 2020 Season 1 Episode 18
Mom Of All Capes

Parents and educators play an integral role in serving us narratives through our formative years; narratives that will shape the way we value others and look at life throughout our lives. This month we submersed ourselves in diverse narratives. We watched Beyoncé’s Black is King; Parasite, The Host, both directed by Bong Joon-ho; and the Lovecraft Country series developed by Misha Green. We’ve spent our time reading the wise and creative words of Chimamanda Adichie, James Baldwin, Nawal El Saadawi, Angie Thomas, Sobonfu Somé, Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. Dubois, James Weldon Johnson.

In this episode, we discuss how our adopted narratives shape the way we view life and the need for expanding our narratives to create more inclusive experiences. We mentioned the work of two very important thinkers. Please learn more about Gloria Ladson-Billings and Kimberlé Crenshaw below…
