Ep. 4 Church & State
ep 4. church & state
ft. Brittini Gray (Ree Belle)
Brittini Gray (Ree Belle) and Karen (Jia Lian) Yang attended Eden Theological Seminary together. They've grown leaps and bounds through those years, being formed as faith leaders in the midst of the Ferguson uprising. Join us for a kitchen table chat about faith-based organizing, twists and turns in our callings, and holding space for the questions.
Black freedom at any cost is a sentiment Brittíni holds true as a master strategist who creatively works to heal communities from trauma.
As a poet, healer and organizer, Brittíni has always worked at the intersections of art, healing, spirituality and justice and brings this passion to her work. She is a collaborator at heart, co-creating, co-leading, and co-founding dozens of community based projects over the past decade. Brittíni currently serves as InPower Institute’s Healing Justice Fellow & Artist-in-Residence, co-leads Lewa Farabale, a Womanist Gathering, runs her own business as an organizing consultant specializing in political education, healing justice, art, and cultural organizing, has a film series kickoff this weekend in partnership with Aziza Binti entitled- Movement Women: The Making of a CREW, and is anticipating her poetry being published this fall in the upcoming collaborative book with transqueer latinx theologian, Dr. Robyn Henderson- Espinoza, Activist Theology!
