Afro State of Mind by Lurie Daniel Favors provides a critical analysis of issues and current events impacting the Black community. Lurie is the author of Afro State of Mind: Memories of a Nappy Headed Black Girl, a story that uses one girl's experience with hair and colorism to explore race, history and identity.
This week's episode is called Shopping While Black. The recent reports of high profile cases of retail racial profiling at Barneys and Macy's have their roots in a much deeper history.

How to Shop Healthfully at the SupermarketShopping for food should be a pleasure, and it should go a long way to improving our health. After all, food contains the nutrients we need for a strong, healthy body and mind. Or does it? Unfortunately, so much of our food is laden with GMOs (genetically modified organisms) pesticides, antibiotics, sugar, harmful fat, sugar substitutes --NutraSweet is the worst – artificial flavorings, preservatives and other chemicals, including synthetic vitamins that the body treats like drugs.Amazingly, we are exposed to approximately 84,000 chemicals on a daily basis. Many, though not all, are in the food we eat and the beverages we drink. But don’t despair. You CAN shop healthfully at the Supermarket, when you have the right information.. Join Beverly Nadler, our Health Guru, for our thought-provoking show.http://www.beverlynadler.com
