We speak with Ashara Ekundayo about “Artist As First Responder” in reaction to 9/11 and her campaign to bring more awareness to Black August with “9 Days of Radical Practice.”  Later we hear from Poor News Network about America’s assault on economically disenfranchised communities.

 

Guest: Ashara Ekundayo is a cultural strategist, independent curator, serial social entrepreneur and connector of the urban landscape who facilitates the creation of “collaboratory” spaces where methodology amplifying the intersections of social permaculture, social entrepreneurship, and social justice can be manifested. AAFR is  currently running a campaign to bring more awareness to Black August with “9 Days of Radical Practice” that ends this Sunday with a guided meditation by Ashara.
