In this episode of the Heromakers Podcast, Laurie and Ann talk with Khristi Lauren Adams, a speaker, author, youth advocate, and minister who authored the Parable of the Brown Girl, which highlights the cultural and spiritual truths that emerge from the lives of young black girls. She works as the Firestone Endowment Chaplain and an Instructor of Religious Studies and Philosophy at The Hill School in Pottstown, Pennsylvania and as Interim Director of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at the Hill School. She is the Founder & Director of “The Becoming Conference”, an annual conference designed to empower, educate & inspire girls between the ages of 13-18.
In this episode, we talk about Khristi's journey to discover why she loves working with youth and vulnerable populations, why diversity is so important for our future, and how to listen to the stories of our girls of color who are growing up with a distorted image of themselves.
This episode is a reminder that sometimes our pain can be our greatest asset and that it is past time we really listened to those who are struggling with their sense of self internally.
