February 15, 2023: Engaging in Authentic Conversation about Race and Racism Requires Listening Not Rebuttal

The Art of Conversation. Active/Intentional Listening. What Do You Trust, Statistics, Lived Experiences, or Both?
At InflexionPoint Podcast we are dedicated to the art of listening in authentic conversation. We challenge our audience to listen actively and intentionally for the purpose of learning, understanding, and taking action. Moreover we strive towards increasing historical and racial literacy by harmonizing historical truth with lived experiences. Everything rises up out of the 4 tenets of Antiracism Activation: courage, conversation, relationship, and accountability. Join Anita, Mavis, and Gail for yet another thought-provoking episode of InflexionPoint Podcast.

February 1, 2023: Message to White Women in America
Theme of the Conversation: Racial Literacy
This definition of racial literacy is from National Council of Teachers of English (NCTA) – Racial literacy is a skill and practice by which individuals can probe the existence of racism and examine the effects of race and institutionalized systems on their experiences and representation in US society.
January 18, 2023: Tribute to Phangisile Mtshali
Mourning a Global Citizen–On January 4, 2023 Phangisile Mtshali was killed in Estcourt, South Africa. We dedicate this episode to her as a deeply rooted humanitarian, a family and community icon, bold leader, and a dear friend, sister, and colleague to many throughout the world. Phangisile embodied the true spirit of a Global Citizen.
On December 21, 2022 InflexionPoint Podcast featured a powerful guest and dear friend, Phangisile Mtshali from South Africa. We had an in-depth conversation about the historical plight of Black South African farmers, which in many ways is similar to the historical plight of Black farmers in the United States. This is evident when you think of land as power and the role of the government in both nations.

November 3rd, 2021 episode: Evolution of the Cairo Question
Enter a brave space to ponder solving The Cairo Question. Engage in dialogue based on the premise that dismantling racism goes beyond laws and legislation or politics or economics. It’s an inside job where personal transformation and accountability impact social change in multiple dimensions: individual, interpersonal, systemic, and structural. It’s a place to get comfortable with deconstructing your inner thoughts, ideas, and beliefs to examine what flows out into the world through your words, actions, and behaviors, particularly towards others who are different from yourself.

Join this journey towards antiracism and cultivating change from the inside out. In this episode you will get to know Anita Russell, the creator and host of InflexionPoint Podcast. You’ll also get to know the co-hosts, Mavis Bauman, and Gail Hunter. Together they make up an online Antiracism Mastermind Group.
