Take the Mantle (with Tarana Burke) - Episode 7
In this episode of Professional Troublemaker, Luvvie is talking with someone who is the literal walking definition of what a professional troublemaker is. She’s a truthteller, she’s a disruptor, she’s a trailblazer and a change agent – activist, author, and speaker Tarana Burke.
In this Fear Fighter February conversation, Luvvie and Tarana talk about what it was like for Tarana growing up and all the paths she walked down to end up on the one she’s on right now, the pain of being misunderstood when you’re trying to make the world a better place for everyone and how Tarana has learned to lean into vulnerability more as she continues to do her work. They also discuss Tarana’s upcoming anthology co-edited with Brené Brown, You Are Your Best Thing as well as Tarana’s memoir, coming later this year in 2021.
