"Our destiny is to take root amongst the stars." - Octavia Butler
The Brown sisters go behind the night sky with one of our favorite astrologers, Chani Nicholas. We reflect on how to relate to and draw upon astrology as we move through change, relationship and movement building.
For this episode, Autumn and adrienne peel back the layers of story, assumption and shame around class, debt and money.
This is the first of an on-going series that will look at post apocalyptic economics.
The Brown sisters interview the legendary Toshi Reagon about the making of the Parable of the Sower Opera, a production years in the making, based on the dystopian novel by Octavia E. Butler. We caught Toshi in the midst of the New York premiere of the opera, and we talked with her about turning earthseed into song, lessons from her mother, and the necessity of creative practice.
