Plan of ATAC Part 3: Audacity

Have you ever been afraid to take a risk? 

There are some days when I am afraid to get out of bed. Not because I don't think I can handle life's responsibilities; rather, I know that I am more than capable of impacting the people around me. Pressure causes big players to make big plays and causes bench players to sit out of the game. 2020 taught me how to make big plays even when no one was watching. The question I have for you is, what type of player are you?

After this episode, take some time to use the reflection resource at this link Click where it says Audience Audacity Reflection. 

Thank you for listening.

Plan of ATAC Part 2: Tenacity

Tenacity: noun

the quality or fact of being able to grip something firmly; grip.

What are some of the different things you wanted to grab hold of in 2020 but couldn't? Did any opportunities slip between your fingers? 

There were times last year where I wish I could have a do-over (that never happened). But it's never too late to look back at the past and reflect.

In part 2 of Plan of ATAC, I take some time to share my challenges with you. Afterward, be sure to reflect on your own. Click this link  Feel free to reflect where it says, 'Audience Tenacity Reflection' to participate.

Birth of a Nation--The Black Female Body--Learning Valuable Lessons from White Supremacy

Birth of a Nation--The Black Female Body--Learning Valuable Lessons from White Supremacy

Birth of a Nation was a 1915 film directed by D.W.Griffith. This is three hours of filmmaking that single-handedly changed the perception of the white woman and black man in American for generations. Birth of a Nation led to the KKK being resurrected, spurring the lynching of thousands of black men for alleged, “inappropriate” interactions with white women. Interestingly, all of this had an indirect and often overlooked effect on the black woman, her body, and lifestyle. There is a drastic contrast in the lives of black and white women that needs to be discussed.
