I met Jarret Dapier (Author) and Andrea Tsurumi (Illustrator) when a resident of Spanish Fort, Alabama wanted to have their book banned from the public library because the main characters were gay men. Their book "Mr. Watson's Chickens," is a fun story about a couple getting overrun by chickens and the chaos that ensues. There is nothing inappropriate in the story, and if you replaced one of the men with a woman, no one would complain. In this interview, we discuss why fighting on the local level matters and how we can all contribute to a greater, more inclusive world. Please tune in and leave your comments int he episode.

In my inaugural episode, I speak with my brave and strong and loving mother. She talks about growing up in Eufaula, Alabama and how racism was woven into the fabric of her life. She discusses the journey of learning and unlearning and how she confronted the parts of herself that needed to evolve. I believe this is a conversation we need more of, and I know that it is an argument for the belief that without hope for change, activism and advocacy are pointless. Please tune in and leave your comments below.
