“I Want to Say to You…Rest is Your Birthright” with Tommy Allgood
My good friend Tommy Allgood joins me for the latest episode of Please Say Black. During this episode, he and I discuss Black Joy. Tommy shares an expansive understanding of Black joy. Together, we hold space to discuss the tensions that communally exist that may prohibit joy in light of our traumas. Tommy helps our listeners understand the power of somatic practice in gaining access to more joy within an anti-Black world and violent systems.
During this episode, Tommy discusses hush harbors and epigenetics. They also mention Austin Channing Brown’s I’m Still Here, Barbara Holme’s Joy Unspeakable, Resmaa Menakem’s My Grandmother's Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies and Overcoming Anti-Blackness and finding Black Love a sermon preached by Teaching Pastor Cedric Lundy.
Tommy is a co-host of the Permission to Be podcast. They are also the creator behind the Collective on Patreon and serves as a guide within the Anti-Oppression Academy. You can follow him on Medium and Instagram.
