OBSIDIAN - Safiyah Cheatam & Adetola Abdulkadir
Why are we afraid of the novel, the new--and how do we handle that fear? What can we learn about Afrofuturism through a non-Western lens? Who are we as parents, and what does being a parent mean? Host Elena Fernandez Collins discusses these questions and more with Safiyah Cheatam & Adetola Abdulkadir of OBSIDIAN.

If you are looking for ways to support or donate to Native communities, the Quileute are fundraising to move their at-risk community to higher ground, and out of the tsunami zone, so that their culture and heritage can thrive for generations to come. Their first objective is to move the Quileute Tribal School, which is currently located right next to the beach, endangering the lives of children and the future of the Quileute tribe.
