Voices From the Future with Sherrita Wilkins

Voices From the Future with Sherrita Wilkins

“FIRST, DON’T CALL THEM MILLENNIALS Wait, what? Let me explain. A study from Pew Research found that only 40 percent of millennials even identify with the word “millennial,” compared to nearly 80 percent of those aged 51 to 69 who consider themselves part of the Baby Boomer generation. I was actually surprised that almost half of millennials claimed to be comfortable with their generational moniker since I find that most of the young people, I meet prefer that their generation not have a title at all. I also find this generation to be more focused on describing themselves as individuals (hence the…

Thank You for your Service Then and Now: Lasting Memories

Thank You for your Service Then and Now: Lasting Memories

I am celebrating veterans and active-duty military who keep us and have kept us out of constant harm’s way, often at great costs. We are reminded that war is a part of human history. I aim to share varied war stories across age, gender, and race to include family impact and cultural legacies. The Vietnam War was my coming-of-age war. I became immersed in and confused by the concurrent war at home about the necessity of US involvement while at the same time grieving over school friends who paid the ultimate price. There were so many bold and untold stories.…

Phenomenal Woman Louise Molton says, “Yes!” to Her Power Within

Phenomenal Woman Louise Molton says, "Yes!" to Her Power Within

This month, Frankly Speaking, is focusing on phenomenal women and how we embrace and manage our universal experiences, rainbows and clouds, courage, and resolve. We are a journey, not a destination; our life is a process, not an event. Even still, we are motion, loving, serving, nurturing, encouraging, and empowering. We are love, and love does. And yes, sometimes… sometimes we get stuck between our no longer the familiar, the habits, and our not yet, who we were created to be, and we may ask, “Am I enough?” By the way, the right answer is a resounding YES! Author Ilyanla Vanzant…

Phenomenal women Afrika Bell Kathuria and Michele Sandiford share Zebra Ears, their creative collaboration.

This month we celebrate the Phenomenal Women who walk into this space through many doors. They authentically share their stories, often vulnerably pay forward what they have learned, and celebrate each other.  Thank you, ladies! Life is always listening to the silent requests of your heart and mind. Life is always surveying the landscape of your heart, gathering the bits and pieces of the emotions buried there. Life is always monitoring the activity of your tongue, checking for ruins and sacred elements. Life knows that your mind, heart, and mouth will produce the requests of your consciousness even when you…

Womens History Month, the origins, and the fight for the right to vote. Let us not go backwards.

Womens History Month, the origins, and the fight for the right to vote.  Let us not go backwards.

Join me in a fascinating, energizing, educational, and empowering discussion about how African American women participated in the battle to the ballot box for all women. Enjoy a personal preamble tribute to the “Notorious” Ruth Bader Ginsburg, including some in her own voice. Women’s History Month in the United States grew out of a weeklong celebration of women’s contributions to culture, history, and society organized by the school district of Sonoma, California, in 1978. Presentations were given at dozens of schools, hundreds of students participated in a “Real Woman” essay contest and a parade was held in downtown Santa Rosa.…

REWIND: You are Never Too Old to Get Rich Featuring Author and Financial Strategist, Kerry Hannon

“An entrepreneur herself and leading expert on people 50 years and older, Kerry Hannon draws powerful lessons from the mid-life entrepreneurs she profiles. Her enthusiasm about the opportunities is inspiring, her cautions are practical and refreshing, and her insights into later life entrepreneurship ars spot-on.

Horses play an exciting role. Listen, get more innovative,…

Women’s History Month Celebrates Nikki Giovanni, Poet Extraordinaire

Women’s History Month Celebrates Nikki Giovanni, Poet Extraordinaire

In her own words, “We had music growing up, 78RPM’s that evolved into 45RPM’s and, always, the radio.  The radio in my day, Black and white, played everything.  Gospel Spirituals, even some opera when Leontyne Price came along.  You could listen to R & B late at night or you could go to the other station and listen to popular music.  There was also jazz if the wind was right.  I feel so sorry for the kids who only hear one kind of music.  Where do your dreams come from? My dream was not to publish or to even be…

REAL WOMEN HAVE CURVES. This movie changed me. A Conversation with NPR movie critic Lily Persy and guest commentator, Virgie Tovar

REAL WOMEN HAVE CURVES. This movie changed me. A Conversation with NPR movie critic Lily Persy and guest commentator, Virgie Tovar

“Jimmy, Ana’s boyfriend, says, “You’re not fat. You’re beautiful.” She is both. “Real Women Have Curves” doesn’t argue that Ana is beautiful on the “inside,” like the Gwyneth Paltrow character in “Shallow Hal,” but that she is beautiful inside and out–love handles, big boobs, round cheeks, and all. “Turn the lights on,” she shyly tells Jimmy. “I want you to see me. See, this is what I look like.” Ana has learned to accept herself. It is more than her mother can do. There have been several movies recently about the second generation of children of immigrants–Indian, Filipino, Chinese, Korean,…

The Voices of Women of Vietnam. Thank you for your service.

My goal in November is to share varied war stories across the spectrum of age, gender, and race to include family impact and cultural legacies. I am celebrating veterans and active-duty military who keep us and have kept us out of constant harm’s way, often at high costs. We are reminded that war is a part of human history. The Vietnam war was my coming-of-age war. I became immersed in and confused by the concurrent war at home about the necessity of US involvement while at the same time grieving over school friends who paid the ultimate price. There were…

“We are in a time of new suns” says emergent startegist, Adrienne Maree Brown

"We are in a time of new suns" says emergent startegist, Adrienne Maree Brown

“What a time to be alive,” Adrienne Maree Brown has written. “Right now we are in a fast river together — every day there are changes that seemed unimaginable until they occurred.” Adrienne Maree Brown and others use many words and phrases to describe what she does, and who she is: A student of complexity. A student of change and of how groups change together. A “scholar of belonging.” A “scholar of magic.” She grew up loving science fiction, and thought we’d be driving flying cars by now; yet, has found in speculative fiction the transformative force of vision and…
