Rank #5: #SilenceIsNotSpiritual with Lisa Sharon Harper

Podcast cover
Read more
In light of the #metoo and #churchtoo movement, Lisa Sharon Harper joins Christina and Ekemini at the table to discuss #SilenceIsNotSpiritual.

From Ferguson to New York to Germany and South Africa Ms. Harper leads trainings and helps mobilize clergy and community leaders around shared values for the common good. A prolific speaker, writer and activist, Ms. Harper is the founder and president of FreedomRoad.us, a consulting group dedicated to shrinking the narrative gap in our nation by convening forums and experiences that bring common understanding, common commitment, and common action toward a just world. Ms. Harper is the author of several books, including: Evangelical Does Not Equal Republican...or Democrat (The New Press, 2008), Left Right and Christ: Evangelical Faith in Politics (Elevate, 2011), Forgive Us: Confessions of a Compromised Faith (Zondervan, 2014), and the critically acclaimed, The Very Good Gospel: How Everything Wrong can be Made Right (Waterbrook, a division of Penguin Random House, 2016). The Very Good Gospel, recognized as the "2016 Book of the Year" by Englewood Review of Books, explores God’s intent for the wholeness of all relationships in light of today’s headlines.

A columnist at Sojourners Magazine and an Auburn Theological Seminary Senior Fellow, Ms. Harper has appeared on TVOne, FoxNews Online, NPR, and Al Jazeera America. Her writing has been featured in Essence, CNN Belief Blog, The National Civic Review, Sojourners’ God’s Politics blog, The Huffington Post, and Relevant Magazine. She has written extensively on shalom and governance, immigration reform, health care reform, poverty, racial and gender justice, climate change, and transformational civic engagement.

Having earned her Masters degree in Human Rights from Columbia University in New York City, Ms. Harper served as Sojourners Chief Church Engagement Officer. In this capacity, she fasted for 22 days as a core faster in 2013 with the immigration reform Fast for Families. She trained and catalyzed evangelicals in St. Louis and Baltimore to engage the 2014 push for justice in Ferguson and the 2015 healing process in Baltimore and trained faith leaders in South Africa to pull the levers of their new democracy toward a more just world.

In 2015 The Huffington Post recognized her as one of “50 Powerful Women Religious Leaders to Celebrate on International Women’s Day.” Most recently, Relevant Magazine recognized The Very Good Gospel as one of “Six Books that Will Change the Way You See the World” and Ms. Harper as one of “Seven Leaders to Follow in 2017.” Pull up a chair and have a seat at the table with us!

BlackGirlMagic Interview: Mahisha Dellinger

Podcast cover
Read more
In this episode of Truth’s Table, Ekemini and Michelle are at the table with Mahisha Dellinger, Founder, and CEO of CURLS. Mahisha Dellinger's mantra is simple. Curly hair should be healthy, frizz-free, defined, and effortlessly fabulous. Consequently, as a beauty advocate and product innovator, Dellinger worked passionately to produce an award-winning line of organic hair care products for women and girls with natural waves, curls, and kinks. Frustrated with the lack of effective products for her newly natural, curly hair, Dellinger left her post as Marketing Manager at Intel Corporation to pursue her passion in giving consumers of naturally curly hair effective and eco-conscious products that are natural and safe for all ages to use. In 2002 Dellinger pioneered the newly natural market when she launched CURLS, a family of organic hair care products targeted for women embracing their natural textures ... a market previously unanswered by the beauty industry.

Dellinger's astute business acumen and natural talent for delivering market-driven products gave way for an instant demand for her product line. Soon thereafter CURLS was available all over the United States, Canada, Brazil, Africa and the UK. As Chief Executive Officer and Founder of CURLS, Dellinger singlehandedly built a strong demand for her popular family of organic products. Soon Target, Sally Beauty, Rite Aid, Walgreens, Wal-Mart and CVS came knocking at her door. CURLS has partnered with these national retailers and is currently in negotiations with Boots in the United Kingdom. CURLS has been featured in a host of beauty publications including lnStyle, Essence, Glamour, Ebony, Juicy, Redbook, Lucky, Seventeen, Vibe, BlaBlack Enterprise, Elle, Modern Salon, Woman's World, Parents, and a host of other hair and salon trade publications.

The retail success and exposure of the CURLS brand has catapulted the business forward. Dellinger is a sought after industry expert. Dellinger was the keynote speaker at her alumni school, California State University Sacramento's "Make Your Mark" conference sponsored by Target and Bishop TD Jakes’ Woman Thou Art Loosed Conference, to name a few. Dellinger has also been featured on several television shows throughout the nation. Dellinger is the star of “Mind Your Business with Mahisha” on OWN, Oprah Winfrey’s television network, as the expert helping other women based businesses reach the million-dollar mark.
