In episode five we talk with Dr. Nikitah Okembe-RA Imani, Professor of Black Studies at the University of Nebraska-Omaha, about becoming "we" people. How do we shift from the Western perspective of "I am" to the African perspective of "we are"? Join us on CHNConnect to continue this conversation as we connect, learn, heal, and grow together in the spirit of Ubuntu.
In this episode, we engage in a healing discussion with Dr. Cheryl Tawede Grills, Professor of Psychology at Loyola Marymount University and Past President of the Association of Black Psychologists and Dr. Taasogle Daryl Rowe, Emeritus Professor of Psychology at Pepperdine University, and also Past President of the Association of Black Psychologists. What is the African perspective of healing? How does African philosophy apply to emotional emancipation?  Our cultural conversation with Dr. Grllls and Dr. Rowe is a recording from our annual celebration Community Healing Days celebration, October 16-18, 2020. We dedicate this episode to the life and legacy of Nana Dr. Patricia Newton "Nana Pat" who worked tirelessly for the emotional emancipation of people of Black African ancestry.
In episode three we engage with Dr. Lisa Ncube, Assistant Provost of Institutional Assessment and Professor at North Park University in Chicago. Dr. Ncube is also the author of the often-cited article "Ubuntu: A Transformative Leadership Philosophy." What an incredibly healing experience as Dr. Ncube guides our listeners in the ways of Ubuntu so that we, people of Black African ancestry, can start to reclaim our humanness. We no longer need to search for our belonging because we are the sons and daughters of Africa. Nothing and no one can sever us from her. 
Enola G. Aird, Founder and President of the Community Healing Network (CHN), joins us in this second episode of Breathe, Baby, Breathe: The Fresh Air of African Values. From the origins of CHN to the final vision of a world where Black people have moved from surviving to thriving, we embark on a wonderful and deep conversation regarding the racially-charged times that surrounds us in 2020 as well as the steps Black people must take to move forward and reclaim their rightful place in the circle of humanity. The work of emotional emancipation from the lie of White superiority and Black inferiority is essential for non-Black people as well. As Enola asks, "Who will welcome us back into the circle of humanity?" 
Our first episode of Breathe, Baby, Breathe is a recording of our Africa Day Virtual Retreat: Breathing the Fresh Air of African Values, held on Monday, May 25th. It was a time to lift our collective spirits and ground ourselves by remembering who and whose we are as the children of Africa. We invite you to sit back, open your mind and your heart, and breathe...Listeners' note: we were unable to remove approximately 90 seconds of the background noise that occurs during President Aird's opening remarks.
