Coolikan turns 3 this month. In celebration of her journey on this earth, we find ourselves talking about the very topic that got this blog and podcast in motion: racial injustice and inequality and the role of the Church in addressing it. While this podcast is not entirely devoted to the topic, given the events unfolding in the the U.S. we can’t help but wonder and hope for a time when a Coolikan Birthday Celebration doesn’t include a discussion on racial injustice because we’ll have made substantial strides in the coming years and decades. One can only hope and that’s what we have: faith, hope and love. And above all these is love, which we hope, despite being in need of love today, will swell and flood.
In celebration of summer and vacations, and potential relocations abroad (depending on the U.S. Presidential Election results), we’re talking about traveling while black. Lifelong nomad and travel aficionado Acasia, leads this conversation on the importance of Black folks traveling domestically and abroad and her experience as a Black American Wanderlust!
