Kemba Shakur founded the nonprofit Urban Releaf in 1998 with the goal of transforming some of the poorest most barren parts of Oakland into friendly, verdant neighborhoods with tree-lined streets.

 

In a previous life, Kemba worked as a prison guard at Soledad and ironically noted that there were more trees on the grounds of the prison than on the street that she lived on in Oakland. 


Look, we don’t want to spoil the ending to the first book in the new Superheroes Club series. We’ll just say that it’s about some kids who manage to perform deeds that are both legitimately heroic, and attainable for the kids reading about them. Ta-da! 

In this conversation, Sherak talks about developing the Superheroes Club and sharing them with her three children and ten grandchildren.


There are so many things we know we should be doing. We can be better. We have to become better! Who doesn’t want a healthy body, a happy family, a fulfilling career, an organized home, and a passion project brought to fruition?

Through the Eyes of Women: Poetry and Process

Dec 12, 2017

Through The Eyes of Women hosted poet and author Celia Drill, who reads from her new book, Awake Through Dreams. Danielle Orr and Celia Drill (formerly Celia Homesley) talk about some of Celia's mentors and poetry nights at the old Jambalaya in Arcata, where many young poets took the stage during a pivotal open mics season, which led to the published works by many of our beloved Humboldt County favorite poets.

It was almost 40 degrees on a Wednesday night.  In the woods above Stafford, California an unknown activist from Arkansas hoisted the last of her supplies up into an ancient redwood under an almost-full moon. 

738 days later, Julia "Butterfly" Hill descended as an environmental icon. 


As the U.S. prepares for Thanksgiving next week, many of us think of the image of happy 'Pilgrims and Indians' coming together for a big feast. But what about the rest of the story -- the historical facts versus the Mayflower myths?

This is a condensed version of a Thursday Night Talk program from November 16, 2017. 

Long-time community diabetes activist, diabetes policy advocate and blogger, mother and wife, Christel Marchand Aprigliano believes that to live optimally with a chronic illness, you have to have support from friends, family and peers who live with the day to day, moment to moment challenge of facing something that never goes away.

On this week's Through The Eyes Of Women, Dr. Corinne Frugoni talks with Victoria Sweet about her new book, "Slow Medicine". 

Over the years that Victoria has been a physician, "healthcare" has replaced medicine, "providers" look at their laptops more than their patients, and costs keep soaring. Yet the remedy that economists and policy makers continue to miss is also miraculously simple. Good medicine takes more than amazing technology; it takes time - time to respond to bodies as well as data, time to arrive at the right diagnosis and the right treatment.


The history of Native and Indigenous people in California is told through many lenses. According to Deborah Miranda—author of the book Bad Indians: A Tribal Memoir, the stories of her people and many others who survived decades of persecution and genocide under colonialism, the gold rush and California missions, have not been told by enough native perspectives.

 What is your earliest memory of money?  What did you learn about money from your parents? Why is it easier to talk about sex than money in our culture?  

These are some of the questions that have lived in the back of my mind for a long time.  Kimberley Pittman-Schulz has had a long career in helping people from all walks of life donate to charities that reflect their personal values.  

"Money gets tied up with a sense of self-esteem," she says.

Through The Eyes of Women: Harnessing Intuition

Can tapping into your intuition change your life? How do we unlock creativity and embrace our full potential? For most of us, it’s easier said than done. Jill Willard says that we all can tap into our intuition in a way that can empower us to be more creative, fulfilled, and reach our potential.


We have the best of intentions. We do. We can declare our love. We can promise to always be there. Sometimes we might even promise to always do the dishes when our partner cooks. And of course, we mean it when we say it.

But are you willing to back that up in writing, partner?
