SEASON TWO 2018-2019
Warm and comfy in my home watching the snow–and so very glad I bought and froze a bunch of veggies this summer!
Just need to bake the chicken….cooking from scratch is not hard if you give yourself time to prep.
Sunday snow day menu:
Fresh Black Eyed Peas
Homemade Cornbread (fuck jiffy mix!)
Baked Chicken w/Onion Soup Sprinkles
I had plenty of onions and peppers plus fatback for the greens and peas. I’m going straight up soul food today. Then I’m getting busy with my course stuff.
Tomorrow never arrives in the place we call the here and now. Today is all you’ve got right here, right now. Live and act accordingly.
Good afternoon readers and listeners,
You might like this podcast—my guest Lisa Rose-Rodriguez talks about her work in reducing gun violence in Black communities with a focus on young Black men and boys.
How many leaders who shape policy in American institutions believe in the racist myth that African-Americans accept gun violence in our communities as a norm? Dehumanizing African-Americans in the justice system and in mainstream media has kept victims from receiving needed treatment and remedies in medical settings such as emergency rooms, as well as receiving needed counseling. Racial bias may have also blinded us to possible preventative solutions beyond criminalization.
Epidemiologist Lisa Rose-Rodriguez discusses her work to decrease mortality rates for African American men and boys through counseling and improvement of interpersonal connections. As a board member of Connecticut’s Mothers United Against Violence, Lisa has worked with victims, and has advocated for a reinterpretation of gun violence as a public health issue that must be remedied by preventative counseling and treatment through local/state institutions, as well as nonprofit and grassroot organizations.
Lisa Rose-Rodriguez was born in Cleveland, Ohio. After graduating from Shaker Heights High School, she matriculated at Howard University in Washington, DC. There she upheld the tradition of attending an HBCU for three generations. She received a Masters of Public Health at the University of Connecticut and is completing a Ph.D. in Media Philosophy at the European Graduate School.
