Counseling Multiracial Families with Rorri Geller-Mohamed, Ep. 235

Ep. 235: Rorri Geller-Mohamed created U Power Change for families who are navigating some super challenging stuff.  She used her professional background as a therapist to develop U Power Change but raising a multiracial family is also very personal to her. Having grown up in a multiracial family that was formed through adoption when her Mexican-American brother joined her family and now as a white mom raising children in a multiracial, multicultural, and multifaith family, after marrying her husband who is Guyanese, she is extremely passionate about helping our children to feel supported in their identity and thrive. Professionally, she's been doing this work for over 15 years with youth, parents, and families in a variety of school, community, and clinical settings. For her, it always goes beyond just working with families, as she sees it as a necessity to advocate for racial and social justice often by working with leadership and organizations to create systemic change.  Her dream is that the next generation can thrive in a safe, equitable, and inclusive world. As a white person, she also believes it is part of her responsibility to reach out, support, and organize to bring more white people into anti-racism and racial equity work.

Exploring Multiethnic and Multicultural Experience Onstage with Comedian, DC Benny, Ep. 210

Ep. 210: This week on the Multiracial Family Man Podcast, we speak with comedian, writer, and performer DC Benny about his childhood in DC, his multicultural heritage, his interracial marriage, and changing sensibilities in society about what audiences find funny or objectionable.   In the hard-hitting New York comedy world, D.C. Benny is a heavyweight contender. Benny’s unusual style of telling autobiographical stories, inhabited by original characters has been sharpened for almost thirty years as a performer. His personal essays, stories, and articles have been featured in New York Magazine, The New York Observer, Narratively, and Heeb Magazine. Benny’s diverse fan base know him from a wide range of appearances; his “White Boy Rips The Apollo” clip with almost ten million views, his Comedy Central Presents, one the of the network’s highest-rated half-hour specials, as a top eight finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, his role as Caesar in John Singleton’s feature film “Illegal Tender”, as “Chaz” on the soap opera “As The World Turns”, and national commercials for Verizon, Dell, Volkswagon, Wendy’s, AIG, as well as the Budweiser “How You Doin’?” superbowl spots campaign. His weekly comedic story-telling show, Urban Myth, became an underground staple, where performers such as Dave Chappelle, Robert Kelley, Jim Gaffigan, Jim Norton, Jay Oakerson, Kevin Hart, Mike Epps, and SNL’s Dean Edwards would tell their true, funny, stories, to a packed house at The Zinc, a downtown New York jazz bar. Currently, Benny co-hosts the story-telling podcast “Tall But True” with his friend, Cash Cab’s Ben Bailey, where guests like Ray Romano, Dom Irrera, Colin Quinn, Adam Ferrara, Artie Lange, and Bill Burr share funny stories and talk smack. Benny lives in Brooklyn where he fiddles around with old Land Rovers when he is supposed to be helping his wife run her natural skincare business. He has a dog named Grits and two cats who prefer that he not share their personal information in this bio.

Multiracial family moms and the nanny question, Ep. 182

One issue that continues to haunt and plague Multiracial families is the dreaded "nanny question," in which people think mothers of color are the babysitter or nanny of their own children. On this episode, I talk about this but then turn the mic over to you, the listeners, and ask you to send in your stories and anecdotes, which you can do by messaging me on Facebook (facebook.com/alexbarnettcomic) or on Twitter (@barnettcomic).
