38 | AfroUrbanism For Thriving Black Communities with Lauren Hood

February 9, 2022

Show notes

The words we use to describe communities experiencing historical disinvestment can act as self fulfilling prophecies for marginalization. How can we change the language we use to enable people to thrive? This week, we’re joined by community developer and equity facilitator Lauren Hood to talk about the Black Thriving Index she's developing to do exactly that. We also explore the concept of AfroUrbanism, and why it's important to intentionally place culture at the forefront of community development.
