Contrary to what you might think, many of us are living on plantations in present-day. While the plantations many of us occupy look vastly different than our forebearers', white supremacy continues to trap us within violent systems -- and the mental health consequences in our community are resounding. But we don't have to remain disconnected from our needs, dignity, and freedom. Today's guest Dr. Christena Cleveland, a social psychologist, public theologian, author, and activist, will guide us as we explore what leaving the plantation entails.
