Health Care or Kill: Healers and Self-Care -EP005

This week, Sister Love Song B speaks with ire around gun violence, mental  illness, and the delivery of poor healthcare in lower income communities and the importance of self-care.

The rise of community based healers is evidence of social intelligence and piling dissent is making people aware about taking control and returning to an organic lifestyle incorporating natural remedies.    Our society is increasingly moving towards an alarming rate of subliminal desensitization to human trauma; lacking compassion in mind,-body health, spirit and in self-awareness and therefore feeds into Peripheral Neuropathologies.  Americans need an improved and qualitative healthcare system of providers.

October and November is the month of celebrations to honor ancestors such as El Dia Del Los Muertos, All Saints Day and Siku Ya Wafu.  In The Woke Ancestor segment we honor Rebecca Lee Crumpler – (February 8, 1831 – March 9, 1895) African American physician and author.

SHERISE-SHEROSE segment gives honor to Shirley Chisholm – (November 30, 1942 –  January 1, 2005) Born in New York City, NY, she attended Brooklyn College and earned a Masters from Columbia University.  Ms. Chisholm, an American politician, educator, and author was the first  black woman elected to the United States Congress and the first female,  and black Democratic candidate to run for the office of the Presidency. We must reject not only the stereotypes that others hold of us, but also the stereotypes that we hold of ourselves.” Shirley Chisholm. 

Sample music recorded: Zap Mamma and Hugh Masekela.
