Humanitou: Conversations of Humanness + Creativity
20: Ber-Henda Williams, empathic coach and bilingual poet, on empathy, systemic racism, cultural behaviors, collective grief, curiosity and reaffirming connections of humanity
Ber-Henda Williams is an empathic coach and facilitator, a bilingual poet and storyteller, and founder of The Power of Girlhood, a leadership institute for teen girls in Detroit. In this conversation, in the days following the police shooting of Jacob Black seven times in the back in Kenosha, Wisconsin, we talk about empathy and getting curious about ourselves, systemic biases and anti-racism. We talk about spiritual practices and having courageous conversations, and how to chip away at the callousness and lack of humanity that pervades society right now, and about the need for collective mobilization for something better.
