Forward: Reclaiming Wellness - Beyond Survival

After having our culture and freedoms stripped from us during slavery, African-Americans have always struggled to define wellness within the context of the American majority. Let’s be honest, the odds have been stacked against us, which contributes to many of the health- and wellness-related issues our community faces.  In this third episode of our series ‘Forward’, we explore ways to promote not just physical, but emotional and mental health in 2020 and beyond. Join us as speaker, entrepreneur and mindfulness expert, Nicole Cardoza, explains how TRUE wellness goes beyond just the amount of exercise we get and what we eat, and teaches us how we can define wellness on our terms.

Forward: STAY WOKE - The Revolution Starts Inside

In the second installment of this special Black History Month series called ‘Forward’, Justin guides us on a journey of self-exploration to understand our inclination to look outside of ourselves for acceptance, validation, or purpose.  He explains how staying woke is more than a catchphrase. It’s a call to action that recognizes our collective consciousness brings us closer to living the life we want to live instead of defaulting into prescribed norms. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. The revolution is now. It starts within. It starts with you.
