Black Parents: Discussing Race & Racism With Your Kids

Black Parents: Discussing Race & Racism With Your Kids

This was such a good convo, ya'll! This week, I chatted with Kinna Thomas, Mom to two Black sons, about discussing race and racism with your kids. As with all aspects of living while Black, for us, raising children has that added layer of being Black in today's America. It's been noted that children begin to notice race and skin tone as young as six months. And, as we've seen throughout the years, incidents in the classroom and on the playground as well as nationally recognized events like George Floyd and Breonna Taylor's recent murders force us, as Black parents, to have "the talk" earlier and earlier. I don't know about you, but for me, it's been difficult to navigate. My oldest turned four earlier this year, and, for the most part, we were able to shield her from the terrible events on the news. But I still feel a responsibility to talk to her about race in an age appropriate way so that we can normalize those discussions before she goes to school and begins to interact more with other adults and kids outside of our little bubble. I knew if I was struggling, other moms must be too; so, I wanted to open a dialogue about this issue. Kinna recently published an open letter in Peekaboo Magazine called Dear White Moms, and she's been very open on Facebook about the conversations she has with her kids, so I'm super excited to share our chat with you guys! As always, feel free to share your comments below, or ...

Unschooling Resources For Black Families + More On Sustainable Real Estate

Unschooling Resources For Black Families + More On Sustainable Real Estate

If you're wondering how exactly unschooling and sustainable real estate go together, don't worry because you're totally going to get it after listening in on my chat with Dr. Sundiata Soon-Jahta. Dr. Sundiata and I are members of the same Conscious Parenting group on Facebook and when I came across his website, I knew I had to have him on. He wears many hats, but in today's episode, we're chatting mainly about unschooling (how it works, how it differs from traditional homeschool) and, of course, a life of sustainability as it relates to selling real estate. For example, did you know that you can participate in carbon offset programs to help balance your carbon footprint? Me either! Talk about putting your money where you mouth is! Intrigued? So was I! Take a listen, and, as always be sure to SUBSCRIBE to the pod and leave a rating/ comment below!

What It’s Like To Work As A Successful Actor During A Pandemic + A New Black Owned Business For Everyone To Check Out!

What It’s Like To Work As A Successful Actor During A Pandemic + A New Black Owned Business For Everyone To Check Out!

Aaaand, welcome to episode two of TRIBE Culture LIFE! I have wanted to interview my sister, Hillary, for a while now. There are so many topics we talk about daily and every single one of them would have made for an awesome podcast episode, but I’ve always been especially fascinated with (and so proud of!) Hillary’s successful acting career. When she first told us, her family, about her plans to become an actor, we were skeptical to say the least. I think, for some people who aren’t in her world, it’s hard to see the middle ground between the starving actor and the successful, famous actor you see in movies or on television every day. But Hillary has managed to build a fruitful, successful career that has given her so many opportunities and I was really excited to chat with her about how she’s done that. So. If you’re considering acting. If you know an aspiring actor. If your kids want to be actors. This is the episode for you! Oh, and the Black owned business part? Hillary recently started Joyful & Company, a luxury, Vegan, organic, cruelty-free bath & body shop. Her products are lovingly handcrafted in small batches, and the quality is top notch (my girls looove her bath bombs and I’m partial to the hand soaps; I can’t get enough of Gummy Burst). Her holiday collection recently dropped and there are some amaaazing scents there! Mentioned In Today’s Episode Joyful & ...

Welcome To The Tribe Culture Life Podcast

Welcome To The Tribe Culture Life Podcast

Premier Episode! I'm super excited to share my very first episode with you guys! The Tribe Culture Life podcast has been a loooong time coming, and it's the perfect vehicle to share even MORE Black and POC stories and voices with you. So, where does the name Tribe Culture Life come from? It's simple: if you're ready to hear even more perspectives on cultural issues that matter to our community, you're my people and you're definitely my tribe! As you may know, I started All Day Britney earlier this Summer as a way to share my story and encourage others to share theirs. Here, I write about everything that interests me, from my adventures raising my babies to style advice and reviews of the Black owned businesses that I patronize as often as I can. Originally, my YouTube channel was where the "other Black and POC voices part came in". I have so enjoyed chatting with my guests and getting to know them and their stories. That segment seems to be pretty popular with you guys too! But, it occurred to me that my chat sessions might be much easier to consume in podcast form, since you listen to those while you're doing... well, just about anything else. And so, Tribe Culture Life was born! I've got some great guests lined up for you over the next few weeks so I hope you'll join me and engage! Feel free to leave comments here, or wherever you happen to catch an episode (Spotify, iTunes, ...
