How can we create a peaceful world? With Zhana, author of Success Strategies for Black People. This is Part 1 of a 3-part broadcast. Part 2 includes an interview with Carthenia Jefferson, a member of Black Women for Positive Change, who hold the annual Week of Nonviolence.
We are frequently subject to violence, and the Black community is subject to particular forms of violence, including police violence. In recent days, we have seen the deaths of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd. How can we have a nonviolent response to these incidents, and the many others like them?
Zhana holds the annual Blogging Carnival for Nonviolence as part of the Week of Nonviolence.
Empathy is at the heart of Nonviolent Communication (NVC). Given the state of the world today, how can we cultivate empathy for ourselves and others?
Please note: the annual Week of Nonviolence and the Blogging Carnival for Nonviolence are initiatives of Black Women for Positive Change, and are open to everyone regardless of racial or cultural background, gender or any other difference.
You are invited to phone in about how we can create a peaceful world.
