In this episode, we talk with Fati Abubakar about changing the narrative. Fati explains her motivations for countering misrepresentation and creating new narratives. She explores the ethical issues that can arise when photographers fly in to a country without a deep awareness of cultural nuances and the resulting repercussions. Fati describes her connection to the people she photographs and how invested she becomes in their stories. She also talks about her experience with managing work life balance, and how she took a break from conflict zones and attended therapy to address this. Fati details her approach to teaching photography and why it is important to teach them about photography ethics.What you'll find inside:‘There's always this backdrop of tragedy. And I didn't like how we were always unhappy in coverage in mainstream media. Do we ever have weddings? Do we give birth to children? Are there naming ceremonies? Are we in school? Do we go to the market to buy groceries? What is the day to day in a conflict zone?' (4.41)‘I didn't like how we were showing people online or on television, and talking about this girl was raped by a terrorist or this girl was a sex slave for a terrorist knowing there would be repercussions. So there wasn't a lot of attention on the cultural differences that we had and also on ensuring that person had the safety that they needed.' (7.45)‘I wonder would I want to be in a book? Would I want to be in someone's home, in a frame from a photo they bought? Would I want to be in a gallery? A lot of these questions are personal for me, at the same time being an ethical, and moral dilemma.' (12.50)‘The closer you are, the more of a burden it becomes because you start to feel personally responsible for anything that happens to that person. And then you become emotionally attached to a point where you're very protective of however the content is being used.' (17.18)‘I have a tendency to get so absorbed to a point where I want to see where they go, where the story leads, how they end up, and I still want to communicate and I always want to link them to other organisations that may help them. For me it becomes a personal issue.' (24.00)On going to therapy and work life balance: ‘I cried at her for teaching me boundaries. I was easily accessible, I was available to everyone but myself.' (27.45)‘I came into teaching knowing that I didn't want to teach young, impressionable people photography without making them aware of not only the historical colonial gaze in many different continents, but also moving forward how to represent their own communities.' (29.50)‘I think that a lot of people go in with the camera first. I think that for me is a problem. Sometimes you have to spend a lot of time without the camera to understand people, to understand society.' (37.16)What does photography ethics mean to Fati?‘For me, approaching a story ethically, means that… I always say that I want to photograph people the way I would like to be photographed. And it means that I want someone to take a photo of me where I would be happy with the image, and how I would be represented. And always to show me what the image looks like, to show me how they portrayed me. To show me how they will tell my story, to ask me if I like how my story is being told, to ask me if this captures the essence of my story. So it's always for me how would you take this photograph if this was someone in your family or if this was you and your self portrait? Are you happy with what this looks like? Is this something you want to present to the world?' (40.11)Links:Bits of BornoTales by LightB&HNational GeographicTED
More than half the people in America believe children are in foster care because they have done something wrong, according to recent polls. For more than three decades, Jennifer Perry has made it her mission to change that perception and open people's eyes to the truth: Children are placed in foster care by no fault of their own and are sometimes victims of abuse or neglect. As the executive director of Children's Action Network and co-founder of FosterMore, Perry uses her connections in Hollywood and politics to change the narrative around foster youth and share stories in order to show the world who they really are. She tells host Giselle Fernandez that her work became personal when she herself adopted her daughters through foster care.

So I've been really enjoying this new feature of the podcast, taking a question from my Monday q&a sessions at Instagram, and digging just a tad deeper into one of those questions, specifically, those questions when you seem to resonate with those questions and my response. This past week, I got a question that I've been around and asked a lot as a question by somebody who asked "Why do churches struggle with attendance?" It's like I said; it's a question I've been around for a long time. I pastored or helped pastor church for 20 years, and questions about attendance and why people show up or why they don't show up. Pretty regular, comprehensive conversation, especially as time went on. At some point during my tenure as a church staff person, we were looking at numbers gathered by experts in church culture, church attendance, etc. And the numbers that jumped out to us were that while the population of the United States of America had grown by something like 11%, church attendance had fallen off by something like 25 to 27%, I don't remember the exact source. But those numbers stood out to us as we're having these conversations early on. And what the numbers did was force or invite, forcefully invite a pretty serious set of questions that led to a good long season of self-examination. And during that season, the question about church attendance became far less general and way more specific to us. Because what we discovered during our soul searching was that particular cultures, particular cities, and particular people's reasons for attaching themselves or detaching themselves for showing up, for not showing up, for never coming for never coming again, tend to vary from moment to moment, season to season, sometimes year to year or week to week, and certainly culture to culture. They were highly specific reasons. And there were commonalities between stories we were hearing from other pastors in different parts of the country. But the particulars were actually really important because, after a moment or two, we didn't want to try to deal with a trend. We wanted to care for the people in front of us. That's what we came to; over the course of that season of self-reflection, I didn't want to fix the problem of church attendance. I didn't want to solve the riddle of why people were not going to church in general. In general, I wanted to know how to care for the people in front of me, how to care for how to minister to them, and how to be a pastor to the folks right there. In the city that I belong to, it became specific because it's supposed to become specific. The general question about church attendance as a broad trend can be helpful only to a certain degree, and then it just becomes really distracting. And in that distraction, too many of us get suckered in by these grand narratives about what's going on. And some of those grand narratives are flat-out dangerous and ugly, which leads me to this. You may have heard it said that this is a generation of people who are leaving God, who have turned their back on God, who no longer desire the things of the kingdom, which puts the entire onus on what might be happening in the hearts, the mind lives, the bodies, the households of the people who no longer show up to the particular product we have been doing out since the 1930s that we now call church the issue is with them, there's something wrong out there that they don't show up here. I would like to flip that script. What if we're not talking about people turning their back on God? What if we're talking about people who no longer see God in particular ways that our particular expression of church describes, hosts, or celebrates, and that what isn't happening is that they're leaving God and no longer want anything to do with the things of the kingdom or the things of God, but instead, these are people who are looking. And if they've turned their eyes anywhere, they have turned their eyes into spaces where they hope, sometimes actively, sometimes unconsciously, they hope and expect to be met by a God who is everywhere, God who is not limited by the particular expression of a particular culture of people who have been doing church in a particular way since the 1930s 1940s. What if what we're bearing witness to is a kind of awakening, a challenge and an invitation, a somewhat forceful invitation? For those of us who have lived in and desire and desire to live in church leadership to take a step back. And instead of asking the question, what is wrong? Ask the question, what is happening? It's a more hopeful question to ask the question of what is as opposed to why isn't the way it was the question of where are people headed, as opposed to why are people leaving, it does two things for me really, specifically, as a human, as a Christian, as someone who desires longs to actually lead people that actually presented an image of the people that I want to love, as mature and whole, and real and complex? People who are worth spending our time on as opposed to mindless consumers who just need a better pitch so that they might come back? No, what if there's something truly good, beautiful happening in the hearts, the minds of souls, the bodies of households of these people, and they're on the search for a way to connect with God that makes sense of what's happening in their lives? Also, if God is everywhere, and God is everywhere, doesn't that free me from the responsibility of creating a place that is sufficient for clarifying the work of God for someone? Instead, I can be more like Philip, who, in the eighth chapter of Acts, comes alongside the chariot of a man from a completely different culture with a completely different language and who is having a unique experience of God right there in the chariot, and who stood there long enough to listen to pay attention to what was happening in the chariot, before then being invited into that chariot that foreign space to which Philip had previously not belong? There wasn't Phillips chariot. It was The Eunuch's chariot. It was the Ethiopian's chariot. And as he sat in that chariot and asked questions about what the unit was experiencing in reading, he was then invited into that Unix process because God was up to something before Philip showed up. What if the challenge in this moment is not to figure out what we're doing wrong in our institutions, in our spaces, and in our methodologies, but instead to figure out what good true, and beautiful thing is happening in the world around us, that people are being drawn to that we might come alongside some of these chariots and ask questions about the wild and loving and endless and perfect work of the Divine manifesting itself everywhere.
With my special guest JD (@nottodaynetwork) www.darkdaysbrightnights.org and host of "Dark Days Bright Nights" & "Fragile Moments" Podcasts, we discuss how educating people about mental health in every aspect is so very important as it will change it for the better, allow those who suffer from a mental illness today can feel safer and better about their lives and can believe that they can find the right help they need now and not be scared to speak out about their struggles in a society that for the most part still sees mental illness in a negative light.

For years, the dominant voices in the business world were white, male, and straight. But that is no longer the case. Diverse voices are starting to change the narrative. Increasingly, businesses are recognizing the value of diversity in all forms and actively seeking out diverse voices to help them tell their story. When companies embrace diversity, they send a powerful message that everyone is welcome and that all voices matter. We talk about all this with Blair Bryant Nichols, owner of BBN Creative Management. Blair is an expert on developing speakers for corporate events, conferences, and other thought leadership opportunities, including internal and external communications. Join in as he talks about unconscious bias, diversity, and how the right mission and purpose drive success. Quarterly.ai - The Pitch Whisperer in your pocket

Fitness has nothing to do with age.Gail and I met through our mutual friend and friend of the show Jack Perez, founder of The Kuel life. Her Episode is 110Many things can cause aging, such as diet, exercise, sleep, and more. Gail advocates for creating habits in those areas that help you live vibrantly. Her goal is to change the narrative around aging so that younger people can realize that it's something to embrace and look forward to and inspire and motivate her peers never to take their wellness for granted. Vibrant, healthy life is achievable regardless of age! Age is a mindset-old is an attitude. I love her belief that age should never affect how we dress, what we enjoy doing, and how we are portrayed in society. She is here to break down the barriers of institutional ageism and change how fitness brands, in particular, look at midlife women."Growing to be "wellderly" is one of my goals. For this reason, I love surrounding myself with women like Gail. By the way, another extraordinary woman advocating and redefining growing older for women is Maryann Alda, another friend of the show. Her episode is Episode 67 on "Aging Shamelessly." Check out Gail and all the incredible women (and cool dudes) from the show. I am so fortunate to learn and be inspired by them. Today, I know I will get a workout in and feel proud of myself. I want to follow in Gail's footsteps starting today.

let's jump right into it. we talk through flipping the script to make your head a safe space. becoming the person who is okay with being alone in their own mind. your thoughts affect everything around you; how you act, what you say, what your view is of yourself, etc. how are we allowed to feel safe alone if we don't even trust our own minds? with that, i share all the podcasts helping me focus on myself. as i have found, hearing others thought processes' shifts our thought process until we find one that works for us. getbacknecklaces :: https://www.getbacknecklaces.com/?rfsn=6288107.bdd9dc code for 20% off: lmkwyf20 be friends w me on insta :: @kalanineiko be friends w the pod on insta :: @lmkwyfpod --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

The Cincinnati Reds are not as bad as we feared and it starts with the lineup and Tyler Stephenson. Jeff and Steve discuss his impact on the team, and why they are scoring more runs. They also look at the success the Reds outfield has enjoyed as Tommy Pham, Tyler Naquin, and TJ Friedl have been playing well, as of late. The pitching needs to improve, but it's not that far off. The pitching will get better starting with the Reds demoting Vladimir Gutierrez and then sending Dauri Moreta to Triple-A. The Reds should also lean more on two surprise bullpen arms, Alexis Diaz and Jeff Hoffman. The Reds are in Pittsburgh for four games against the Pirates with a golden opportunity to win their third straight series. Conner Overton is on the mound tonight and there are some injury updates with Joey Votto and Nick Senzel. *SUBSCRIBE* on YouTube and *FOLLOW* the podcast on your favorite app and on Twitter and Instagram @lockedonreds Also follow @jefffcarr and @soffenbaker on Twitter Call or text (513) 549-0159 Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!
