Podcast #14

Happy Memorial Day and welcome to the May Podcast!  We’re covering a number of topics, from the history of Memorial Day to Lemonade, social entrepreneurship and gentrification.  The running theme for this podcast centers on community.

Memorial Day recognizes the sacrifices of our fallen service members who fight daily to maintain the security and freedoms experienced in out national community.

In Lemonade, yes, THAT Lemonade, Beyonce speaks to a community of women who have gone through the ups and downs of relational drama and encourages them to embark upon the journey of healing and wholeness after the hurt.

And speaking of healing after the hurt, after being stung by bees, Little Ms. Mikaila of “Me and the Bees” fame decided to create her own business selling lemonade to bring awareness to the importance of honeybees.  She’s impacting the environmental community with her passion.

Finally, as we witness the ongoing demographic shifts and changes across the U.S. we also can’t help but notice the change in the cultural landscape of many historically black and brown communities. The gentrification of one community results in a displacement and muted experiences of people whose voices are worth hearing. So what do we do? And how do we ensure better alternatives?
