Success Strategies with Zhana: Black History Month and the Month of Nonviolence

Unfortunately, this is a very, very sad time.  I am beginning the Blogging Carnival for Nonviolence on a tragic note, once again.  

My guests on today's show were Dr. Lynne Muhammad, founder of the STREAM Labs, and Pastor Charetta Hodge, who is on the ministerial staff of Christhood International Ministries of St. Louis.  Both of my guests attended the recent HWPL Peace Summit in South Korea, as did my Executive Producer Naimah Latif.  

TRIGGER WARNING:  We talked about two extremely violent incidents which recently occurred in South London, and strategies for preventing these types of attacks in future. 

Go here to listen.  

To correct what was said there, 15-year-old Elianne Andam was killed when she intervened in an attack on a friend of hers by the friend's ex. 

Go here for a blog post on domestic violence.  

Go here for my conversation with Mercy Makinde on her experience of escapiing domestic violence.  

Go here for more from the Blogging Carnival for Nonviolence 2023.  

October is Black History Month here in the UK. And it is also the annual Month of Nonviolence which is held by Black Women for Positive Change, and is open to EVERYONE. And that means this is month is the annual Blogging Carnival for Nonviolence. So stay tuned for all the blogs I’ll be publishing this month.  The link for the Blogging Carnival for Nonviolence 2023 is above.
