Humanitou: Conversations of Humanness + Creativity
26: Ber-Henda Williams, founder of The Power of Girlhood, on leadership and poetry, curiosity, FOMO and Sheila E.
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, we talk about Detroit, and about going against the tide and leading from where we are. We talk about the need for curiosity, love poetry as a tool against the political power structure, and going toe-to-toe with the boys in class, laying down beats and rhymes. We've got special shoutouts to DJ Kool Herc and Sheila E. ("she's not just some Prince protegé"), among many other influences, including Eve Ensler and her play, "The Vagina Monologues." And we talk about other things, too. More at humanitou.com.
