Nearly one in two Black women in the US have a loved one who has been impacted by our prison system. Many become de facto civilian experts as a result. Some rise to lead as  catalysts for change. And now, scores of Black women are joining the ranks—as officers of the court, police, and judges—to manage and advance a system that has had such an outsized impact on their lives. On today's episode we look at the many ways Black women are leading the conversation around policy and reform within the criminal justice system.

Where there is a woman, there is magic. Specifically, a Black Woman. Black Women are the mother of civilization. Spiritually. Consciously. Emotionally. That is a lot of power, yet we tend to forget this and fail to see or relate to ourselves as the source of life itself. We see ourselves as victims and strong, but not the author of our own story, and the force behind the world's energy and function. This week, Dr. Venus goes in on why we must embrace the truth of our power as the mother of civilization in order to heal. If we don't, chaos will ensue. She also discusses how we can stop warring with Black Men and let them help in their own way to make our lives better, one toaster at a time.   Key Takeaways: [2:29] We can not have wholeness without each other, and Dr. Venus is creating a community for Black Women to support, learn from one another, and have fun! [4:27] Black Woman, you are quite literally the mother of civilization. The Eve gene is the mitochondrial gene in our DNA that goes back to Africa and points at the genetic makeup of humanity. Civilization started in your womb, but you have been indoctrinated to believe that other people do more and are worth more. No other race or nationality of women have this particular gene, and it's important to understand your God-given power. [6:33] We check our bloodlines for disease and addictions, but what about blessings? How come we can't be predisposed to power? Dr. Venus explains that we are born to transform this world and your bloodline is just one of many things that make you UNIQUE and special. [8:46] Yes, we have been victimized, but we don't have to be victims. Bad things were designed to happen so you become stronger. It's a training ground for getting to the next level. It does not discredit your lived experience and valid story to move out of the pain and to be focused on the future. [12:20] Haters try to take away how special you are and deny your power. You don't really realize that your power is SO amazing that they have to create lies, hide, and pretend that you are nothing in order to justify their behavior. Dr. Venus asks you to get more committed to your freedom than to being right about how you've been wronged. One way to do that is to contend with your bloodline. [19:32] When Black Women are mad and they don't claim their power, the world falls apart. People can't think straight, we have natural disasters, the world as a whole gets flustered. [22:36] Black Men have been attacked and exploited as much, if not more than Black Women. We position masculinity inside of a particular kind of paradigm, so it never gets talked about. Abused people tend to act out what has been done to them. These practices were created in the belly of White Supremacy, and the more we can empower our Black Men, the more they take care of us in their own way. [29:44] Dr. Venus shares how she is letting her man show his love through buying her a TV and a toaster, two things that she may not need, but can let him take care of her in his own way. When we stop fighting, even if we don't agree, we can empower their power. [32:48] When we embrace our power from a spiritual and ancestral level, we can actually impact the people and climate from the inside out. But it can't happen without you.   Quotes: “Where there's a woman, there is magic. Specifically, when she's a Black Woman.” “I'm asking you to embrace what you cannot see, touch, or taste. I'm asking you to embrace your spirit and to embrace that aspect of you that is eternal.” “Everything that is happening in the world is a function of Black Women not claiming our power.” “I'm never discrediting your lived experience, but what I'm doing is questioning how you deal with it.”   Mentioned: Dr. Venus Website | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram  “Hot Mess Millionaire” Amazon Pilot  “Hot Mess Millionaire” Complete Series (https://www.youtube.com/c/DrVenusOpalReese) Pre-order the GurrlApp here: www.TheGurrlApp.com/presale  Free Gift When You Join The Truth Tribe The Black Woman Millionaire Hot Mess Edition   ATTENTION BLACK WOMEN:   If you want to be THE FIRST to know about ALL things Dr. Venus' tech start-up, fill out the form below so you get access FIRST to updates, launches, and the behind the scene scoop! http://bit.ly/DrVenusAppInfo   RESOURCES Scientists Think They've Found 'Mitochondrial Eve's' First Homeland January 1988 Scientists Reveal That The Black Woman is The Mother of HumanKind ( Mitochondrial Eve /Mothers ) THE INNER WORLD Black Witches, African Priestesses, Wise Women And the Convergence of The Black Feminine in Spirituality Healing the black man and woman's relationship (The Revolution Is A Lifestyle pt.2)

So today, we will talk about the interesting outfit that Lizzo wore to the Cardi B party and whether or not this is an empowering image of black women or an image that is degrading. Rapper Meek Mill also received some pushback for an album cover that some considered to be derogatory toward black women. The response that we both saw online was that a black woman had actually done the painting for Meek Mills album cover, but we wonder if this is enough of a reason to allow any image of black women to be put on the side of a bus.

In this episode, Ekemini and Christina are sitting at the table with Jarvis R. Givens to learn about his book, Fugitive Pedagogy:Carter G. Woodson and the Art of Black Teaching. What is fugitive pedagogy? Why does it matter? How is it still in operation today? Dr. Givens takes us to school, y'all! So pull up a chair and have a seat at the table with us. Jarvis R. Givens, a native of Compton, California, is an assistant professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, a faculty affiliate in the department of African & African American Studies, and the Suzanne Young Murray assistant professor at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University. Givens earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of California, Berkeley. He is a Mellon Mays, Ford Foundation, and Gates Fellow. Jarvis Givens is a co-director of a major new research project called The Black Teacher Archive with Imani Perry, PhD, of Princeton University. Givens is also the co-editor of We Dare Say Love: Supporting Achievement in the Education Life of Black Boys. He lives in Roxbury, Massachusetts. About the Fugitive Pedagogy: A fundamental part of black education during slavery and in the post-Emancipation period—centered on African Americans concealing important elements of their learning and masking their true intentions for education. In Fugitive Pedagogy, Jarvis R. Givens chronicles the efforts of Carter G. Woodson—a veteran schoolteacher during the Jim Crow era—as an iconic example of how African Americans strategically subverted an anti-black school system even as they were coerced to comply with white authority. Woodson, who went on to found Black History Month, spent his career fighting the “mis-education of the Negro" by helping teachers and students to see themselves and their mission as set apart from an anti-black world.

Does the Meek Mill Album cover disrespect black women? - Dr Boyce & Jeff Lightsy Jr. The media took note of a man who felt that the cover of Meek Mill's new album is horribly disrespectful to black women. According to Black America Web, #MeekMill should expect to receive tremendous backlash for this album: The old saying goes that art imitates life, but what happens when the art in question may be imitating a lifestyle that could be offensive to a whole race and gender of people? One very vocal white man on Hollywood Blvd recently felt it was his duty to call out the artwork for Meek Mill's new album, Expensive Pain, somehow tying it to the disrespect of Black women, Masonic symbolism, vaccine mandates and why you should take off your mask in general. In the two-minute-long viral clip, the local upset resident let his explicit feelings be known about the bus rolling through his neighborhood with the Expensive Pain artwork plastered across the entire exterior as promo. “What the f*ck is this,” the man exclaims while pointing to a portion of the drawing that depicts a, well, pink portion of the human anatomy, further scalding into the camera by adding, “Is this what you want Black women?” His rant continued with more questions for Black women, screaming “Is this how you want to be respected in life?” and also “This is how you want to be portrayed?” After claiming to actually be from Philadelphia, a reason he says otherwise would've made him supportive of the South Philly-bred emcee, he brought up the idea of little girls seeing it and being influenced by the imagery. His argument took a turn for the left towards the end though after he labeled a checkered floor in the artwork as “Masonic” and further made claims that it's all connected to the vaccine, imploring all to “take your freaking mask off — learn about germ theory!” While it certainly made for viral entertainment, what the guy failed to do was his actual research to learn that his root of frustration was actually created by Nina Chanel Abney, a female African American contemporary artist that explores themes from race and gender to homophobia and pop culture.

Dr. Erica R. Edwards's The Other Side of Terror: Black Women and the Culture of US Empire (New York University, 2021) reveals the troubling intimacy between Black women and the making of US global power.  The year 1968 marked both the height of the worldwide Black liberation struggle and a turning point for the global reach of American power, which was built on the counterinsurgency honed on Black and other oppressed populations at home. The next five decades saw the consolidation of the culture of the American empire through what Erica R. Edwards calls the “imperial grammars of blackness.” This is a story of state power at its most devious and most absurd, and, at the same time, a literary history of Black feminist radicalism at its most trenchant. Edwards reveals how the long war on terror, beginning with the late–Cold War campaign against organizations like the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense and the Black Liberation Army, has relied on the labor and the fantasies of Black women to justify the imperial spread of capitalism. Black feminist writers not only understood that this would demand a shift in racial gendered power, but crafted ways of surviving it. The Other Side of Terror offers an interdisciplinary Black feminist analysis of militarism, security, policing, diversity, representation, intersectionality, and resistance, while discussing a wide array of literary and cultural texts, from the unpublished work of Black radical feminist June Jordan to the memoirs of Condoleezza Rice to the television series Scandal. With clear, moving prose, Edwards chronicles Black feminist organizing and writing on “the other side of terror”, which tracked changes in racial power, transformed African American literature and Black studies, and predicted the crises of our current era with unsettling accuracy.

Dr. Erica R. Edwards's The Other Side of Terror: Black Women and the Culture of US Empire (New York University, 2021) reveals the troubling intimacy between Black women and the making of US global power.  The year 1968 marked both the height of the worldwide Black liberation struggle and a turning point for the global reach of American power, which was built on the counterinsurgency honed on Black and other oppressed populations at home. The next five decades saw the consolidation of the culture of the American empire through what Erica R. Edwards calls the “imperial grammars of blackness.” This is a story of state power at its most devious and most absurd, and, at the same time, a literary history of Black feminist radicalism at its most trenchant. Edwards reveals how the long war on terror, beginning with the late–Cold War campaign against organizations like the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense and the Black Liberation Army, has relied on the labor and the fantasies of Black women to justify the imperial spread of capitalism. Black feminist writers not only understood that this would demand a shift in racial gendered power, but crafted ways of surviving it. The Other Side of Terror offers an interdisciplinary Black feminist analysis of militarism, security, policing, diversity, representation, intersectionality, and resistance, while discussing a wide array of literary and cultural texts, from the unpublished work of Black radical feminist June Jordan to the memoirs of Condoleezza Rice to the television series Scandal. With clear, moving prose, Edwards chronicles Black feminist organizing and writing on “the other side of terror”, which tracked changes in racial power, transformed African American literature and Black studies, and predicted the crises of our current era with unsettling accuracy. Brittney Edmonds is an Assistant Professor of Afro-American Studies at UW-Madison.

Dr. Venus loves Black Men. Their brilliance, their attitude, their mind, and perspective. Yet somehow, she finds her feelings get hurt when they do things that feel as if they are not standing with her. We march for Black Men when it comes to social change, and yet when it comes to our right to choose, you “man up” and side with patriarchy? REALLY? As more laws are introduced and passed to greatly handicap women of all races in America for their right to choose to terminate a pregnancy, Dr. Venus goes in this week on why some Brothers may agree with the government rather than with their Sisters. They support with their absence when we march, their silence on the topic, and their faith-based posturing. How is this possible? Well, America's very nature is to be two-faced, and it has EVERYTHING to do with masculinity and power. Let's talk about it.   Key Takeaways: [1:20] As laws are introduced AND PASSED to make it hard for women of all races to take care of themselves, Dr. Venus asks the rhetorical question; when it's time to march for social justice, we are there. But why is it, when it comes to our bodies, Black Men go silent? [2:44] When it comes to Black power, a lot of men feel that it's great when it is social and comes to the right to vote or for better policing standards, but not important when it's concerning the Black female body. It may not matter to you now, but it will when it's your niece or sister that is pregnant and needs help. [5:25] How do you expect women (and all communities) to stay alive and healthy if the government is pulling funding around reproductive rights and trying to take away the woman's right to choose what is best for her body? [7:04] Dr. Venus gives the historical context around Black Men being pimped and sexually exploited, and how that may affect their view on being pro-choice. Black Men have been sexually exploited since they came to this country, and have a complicated relationship with sexuality. Plantation slavery not only turned the Black Female body into a factory but socially rewarded Black Men for producing as many babies as they could during slavery. [10:13] Because of this, there may be a level of numbness or emotional detachment from Black Masculinity around reproduction. We don't talk about this, and it is a deep subject that calls for Black Men and Women to talk openly about these historical wounds. [12:12] Women are socially positioned as the homemaker, and there is a belief that women are responsible for the children. [16:42] Dr. Venus calls bs on the brothers who say they are our partners, but they are quiet. As we march and stand for our social justice, we need to feel it back when it comes time for us to be supported about our reproductive rights. [19:31] If you really love Black Women, and women in general, raise your voice. Pull up. [22:38] We don't need to always agree to align. Dr. Venus gives this example through the man she is dating now. She doesn't agree with him on many things and still finds a lot of his views to be patriarchal, but defends his right to say his piece. [23:02] Not everyone will be in agreement about abortion, but what we want is alignment. What's going to empower us as a people is unity, and that is across the board. [25:06] If our men sit down around reproductive rights and we sit down around police reform, everyone loses. It's hard to stand for something when the people you're standing for don't stand with you. Dr. Venus discusses the heartbreak she felt when she found out that 12% of Black Men voted for Trump. She had to adjust and realize that they have a right to vote for whomever they want to. [29:06] You don't have to agree or understand to stand with someone having a choice, but you have to be aware of the impact. It's going to affect not only your family but will show up in poor Black communities and POC communities first, when they start shutting down health care clinics and Planned Parenthoods where people also get vaccines and health care treatments.   Quotes: “I can align, even if I don't agree.”  “Pro-choice is a choice. Empower me to have a choice.” “We want to talk about the politics of the police, but what about the politics of the Black female body?” “We are real quick to support each other around social justice, but what about reproductive justice?” “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” - Voltaire “What I want is alignment. What I want is solidarity. What's going to empower us as a people is unity, and that is across the board.” “Even if you don't agree with my choice, back  me on it.”   Mentioned: Dr. Venus Website | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram  “Hot Mess Millionaire” Amazon Pilot  “Hot Mess Millionaire” Complete Series (https://www.youtube.com/c/DrVenusOpalReese) Pre-order the GurrlApp here: www.TheGurrlApp.com/presale  Free Gift When You Join The Truth Tribe The Black Woman Millionaire Hot Mess Edition   ATTENTION BLACK WOMEN:   If you want to be THE FIRST to know about ALL things Dr. Venus' tech start-up, fill out the form below so you get access FIRST to updates, launches, and the behind the scene scoop! http://bit.ly/DrVenusAppInfo   RESOURCES These Black Men Pushed Abortion Access Before ‘Roe' Where Are All Of The Pro-Choice Men?
