2020 is shaping up to be a record-breaking year in every way. If Covid-19 wasn’t jarring enough, we are now dealing with rebellions and protests after several deaths of unarmed black men.[Warning!] Episode 34 discusses sensitive topics that may not be suitable for your younger children; especially, if you have not had the discussion of police brutality or racism with them yet. As a result, we have chosen to omit the Cleverly Cultured Kids segment in today’s episode.
Today’s African proverb is
“We are born from the womb of our mother; we are buried in the womb of the earth”
– from Liberia
Word of the Episode (2:35)
