“We must have a vision, to walk towards the future that we want to see, and we must have a “This is the time when we should feel limitless, to focus on the Black excellence, from the beginning of time.”-Lottie V. Spady
Talitha Johnson and Lottie V. Spady of HealingbyChoice! lead a workshop for managing the various energies and feelings experienced by Black / BIPOC people in response to the pandemics of racism and COVID-19. They invite the audience to work on a collaborative Google Slides document that connects their current selves with their ancestors, via anecdotes, quotes, and aesthetics from a past time. Talitha shares her ancestral journey in which she searched for her long lost father, and Lottie discusses her experience as an adopted child longing for ancestral guidance.
