Cultural Agility Strategist Niambi Jaha-Echols talks about the roots of racism, why it's historically been difficult to dismantle, and the role of ancestral healing in curing its wounds.
Racism, Jaha-Echols says, is a sickness that can't be cured by that operating on the same vibrational level of its cause. Eradicating it requires understanding its causes, engaging in ancestral healing, and a willingness to embrace that part of us that is vested in spiritual healing and reconciliation.
Author of the new book, What Color is Your Soul, Jaha-Echols here describes her childhood, what led her to found the African-American girl-power Butterfly Movement, and the influence of Native American spirituality on her understanding of ancestral healing.
Jaha-Echols is the principal of Cross-Cultural Agility, LLC, the author of Project Butterfly, Inspiring The Souls of Our Girls, and her new book, What Color is Your Soul.
