Good Ancestor Podcast with Layla F. Saad
Layla F. Saad is a globally respected writer, speaker and podcast host on the topics of race, identity, leadership, personal transformation and social change. Her first book, Me and White Supremacy, A 28-Day Challenge to Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor, leads readers through a journey of understanding their white privilege and participation in white supremacy, so that they can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on black, indigenous and people of color, and in turn, help other white people do better, too.
For a better glimpse into this book and Layla’s politics on anti-racism, look to her recent videos on Jezebel and NowThisNews, where she offers guidance on dismantling white saviorist narratives and how to be an actually good ally—and not just on Twitter.
Layla has continued to do transformative work in educational institutions and workplaces around the world, and engages in thoughtful dialogue with other womxn in the field through her Good Ancestor Podcast. These conversations aim to include change-makers and culture-shapers from across the globe, including Rachel Cargle, Jamia Wilson, and Leah Vernon.
One of her more recent episodes, Layla sits down with Jennifer Arnise, who is an author, Healer, and Transformational Coach dedicated to helping Black women heal their deepest emotional pain so they can experience more joy, pleasure and purpose in their life. Follow the link below to listen!
