I, Too, Sing America
In 1925, Langston Hughes published the poem “I, Too, Sing America,” eloquently putting into words the yearning for equality by many people who are black. While many things have changed, inequalities abound. For black and brown communities the realities of these inequalities must be juxtaposed with the strength, beauty, and brilliance of their culture. How does one navigate such a society? How does one instill hope for brighter tomorrows and claim their place in America?Join Rev. Dr. TLC as she talks with Schercitha Miller, as they share the joys, complexities, and sometimes painful experiences of living in America. Their strong family legacy of social justice is the bedrock for their commitment to serve, uplift, and empower all people, in general, but Black Indigenous People of Color, in particular. You don’t want to miss this dynamic mother-son duo as they share their personal and professional experiences with dismantling racism.Tune in for this important conversation at TalkRadio.nyc or watch the Facebook Livestream by Clicking Here.Show NotesSegment 1 Terrlyn begins the show with breathing exercises. Reminding us to breathe and to become conscious of our breathing. This helps us to center and focus. Breath in unity and breath out division. Breath in awareness and breathe out our ignorance. Acknowledge that you are enough. Terrlyn starts the discussion by defining internalized racism. She defines it as when a POC values skin that is lighter over skin that is darker. When you believe white culture is superior to all other cultures. She also connects this to the commonly used term colorism. She points out the effects that colorism has had on Hollywood and the black community. Terrlyn introduced her guest Scheritcha Miller. Miller has been in the healthcare industry for over 42 years. She has her masters in healthcare administration as well as Management and Leadership. Right now she is working on getting her doctorate. Miller goes to talk about her experiences with colorism. She shared stories about how strangers and family have been the cause of her trauma and internalized self-hate. Miller talked about how her mother would give her bleach baths and her cousins would discourage her from aiming high in her career because of her darker complexion.Segment 2After the break, Miller shared more about her experience growing up with a darker complexion and the bullying she endured. She found herself not knowing her self-worth. She was surrounded by girls who were treated as though they looked more beautiful because of their looser curled hair or lighter skin. She mentioned that it wasn’t until she had children of her own that she was able to acknowledge her beauty and self-worth. Miller also talked about forgiving her mother for how she treated her growing up. Terrlyn added how it is healthy to forgive older generations for the lack of knowledge and awareness.Segment 3After the break Miller talks about how being darker affected her romantic relationships throughout her life. Miller recalls several times her ex-husband would insult her out of anger, calling her things like “monkey”. Miller shared how these instances would affect and compound her own poor sense of self. Terrlyn and Miller talked about love yourself and knowing your worth in order to not be affected by the hate that is inflicted on us.Segment 4Coming back from the break, Terrlyn asks Miller what would she say to encourage people who were victims of colorism and their families? Miller encourages parents to embrace their children for who they are. As an employer, Miller suggests not to judge people by the color of their skin or even name. She encourages employers to get to know their possible employees for who they are. Towards the end of the show Terrlyn asked her audience if there’s a difference between a black male vs. a black female in their daily life or professional life.

Soul Healing - How to Heal the Trauma of Racism From the Inside Out
Racism is insidious, and its impact can be deadly for people of color, emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. Contributing to this demise is the stress that comes from the daily mental maneuvers of dealing with racism and the plethora of health related disparities in the black and brown communities. The strain of racism can kill the soul, but healing is possible.Join Rev. Dr. TLC as she talks with Business Coach, Bea Baylor, who shares how the stress of racism contributed to her experience with Broken Heart Syndrome, a heart condition brought on by stress. In this episode, Bea will share her journey of awakening and healing which began with gripping pain and a trip to the ER and, eventually, to living a nomadic life. Bea says it is possible for people of color to heal from racism, and it begins with healing the soul. Don’t miss this powerful episode. Let’s heal the wounds of racism!Tune in for this important conversation at TalkRadio.nyc or watch the Facebook Livestream by Clicking Here.Show NotesSegment 1 Rev. Dr. Terryln starts the show off with a breathing exercise. Invites the audience to breathe in healing and breathe out stress. She goes on to introduce her guest for the morning, Bea Bayor. Bea Bayor is a dynamic power house of a woman that loves connecting other powerful women and entrepreneurs. She coaches women who are interested in standing in their power. Bea is a serial entrepreneur and author of Rise Up: Take Charge. Overcome. Succeed. Before the break, Bea mentioned the stress of 2020 on people of color should be followed by soul healing. Bea shares the trauma she experienced this past year that led to BHS. She defines Broken Heart Syndrome as people who suffer stress or worry hold on to grief and emotions which impacts the heart. Bea was so overwhelmed and preoccupied helping others that she ignored the signs and didn’t reach out for help.Segment 2After the break, Terryn and Bea continue the conversation about racial trauma that led to Bea’s broken heart. A lot of the media last year focused on the racial tension and violence towards black men. Bea mentions that she may have had COVID in december 2019. The symptoms were there; shortness of breath, sweats, chest pains. Bea had to turn CNN off in order to get through the day. Her life was spiralling out of control. She was overwhelmed with other people’s problems and taking on more and more. The emotional impact of all of those disparities took a toll on Bea. She talks about being in the middle of a major heart attack and ignoring the signs. Rev. Dr. Terrlyn interjects and explains why it is important to pay attention to our bodies. Before the break, Bea talks about her fear of treatment in the hospital. She talked about being concerned about the possibility of mistreatment or misinformation because she was a woman of color. Terrlyn talks about data that confirms that black Americans are poorly treated in the medical industry which adds on to the daily stress that is followed.Segment 3Back from the break, Terryln and Bea talk about Bea’s treatment in the hospital. Bea was transferred to a heart hospital after several tests. Things turned around because Bea had a family member who was a doctor who was affiliated with the facility. Mentioning that she only got the top notch treatment she received because she knew someone on the inside. Prior to his interventions Bea did not feel she was treated with the same care or attention. As a nurse she knew the system and routines and noticed some procedures were being missed. Terryln says another way we can dismantle racism is if people become aware of the disparities that people of color deal with concerning their health. Often their symptoms go undiagnosed, leading to a belief that their systems are hardier, and that they can withstand the pain.Segment 4Returning from the break, Bea goes into the importance of mental health and professional therapy, citing it as one of the most important aspects of living a healthy balanced life. She shares how her performing of daily soul healing affirmations helps her to ground herself in the present and remind her how much she truly loves herself. Bea shares her journey to reaching and coming back in touch with her own heart and emotions. She decided to buy an RV and live a nomadic life, reconnecting with herself and giving her the time for soulful self reflection. This change in her life was brought on after a startling heart attack, this gave Bea the motivation to get in touch with herself and seek out healing for her soul. She advises that despite whatever relationships listeners feel they may have with their personal higher power, that the nurturing and attention payed to this relationship is what will best facilitate an individual’s growth and personal fulfilment, something Bea feels is unfortunately lacking within the black community.

From Overwhelm to Action
The idea of dismantling racism can be overwhelming and complicated. The sudden attention to the topic in 2020 stopped some people in their tracks. Fear, doubt, shame, and guilt were just a few of the emotions that surfaced, especially for people who already believed that they “treated all people the same.” How do we move people from overwhelm to action? We answer some of this question and more in our next episode of Dismantle Racism.Join Rev. Dr. TLC as she talks with Jeannie Spiro, Business Coach and Strategist, about the steps she’s taken to engage in the work of dismantling racism. Jeannie will share how she became more intentional in her actions both personally and professionally.

Rev Dr Terrlyn brings the conversation to Jeannie’s initial response to the riots and muder of George Floyd last summer. Jeannie says she took a break from social media to reflect on her own personal role in activism. Jeannie explains that the first step was examining her own inclusivity in her life and business.

She brings questions up like who are you hanging out with?, what people do you talk to?, are you truly being inclusive?.

A conversation with your peers, forcing the uncomfortable to become comfortable. Making the normal topic of conversation being held about race and understanding the other.Segment 4The final segment starts with a conversation about what Jeannie has learned in her efforts to dismantle racism. Jeannie says that one of the things she has learned is to become connected and aware of women of color business owners. Jeannie says that this unconscious bias was a big obstacle to get over, but once she did it allowed her to grow the deepest business relationships she ever had. The conversation wraps up with Rev Dr Terrlyn saying you should really take a look around you and think how you could effect change in dismantling racism.

Being Brown in a Black & White World
Race is a social construct and is not real. Yet, we place so much emphasis on it. From filling out forms at the doctor's office to completing the census and more, we ask people to check off the box that indicates their racial identity. Though there is an "other" box, it does little to accurately describe those who are biracial. They often have to pick a side not only on such forms but in life as well.Join Rev. Dr. TLC as she and her guest, Annemarie Shrouder, discuss the complexities and challenges of growing up as a biracial woman of color.They will discuss Annemarie's book "Being Brown in a Black and White World: Conversations for Leaders on Race, Racism, and Belonging." She is a leader in the world of diversity and inclusions and will share her personal and professional experience in this arena.Tune in for this important conversation at TalkRadio.nyc or watch the Facebook Livestream by Clicking Here.Show NotesSegment 1 The first segment opens with Rev Dr Terrlyn introducing today's show and guest.

In this segment Annemarie discusses the invisible place of either or and in some opinions not being black enough. Annemarie says that growing with a black father and white mother she felt out of place and that she didn't belong. This feeling of not belonging led to a mixed view of herself and how the world views her as a biracial woman. She explains that often she felt like she needed to be more white or more black, but was confused on what that even meant. Annemarie contributes this confusion, at no fault to, her mother who she would spend the most time with growing up. She explains having a white mother while existing as half black was difficult in her early life trying to traverse the black and white world we live in.Segment 3The third segment starts with the show coming back up from break. Rev Dr Terrlyn then picks the conversation back up with Annemarie discussing being biracial and how one embodies race. Annemarie continues the conversation discussing her experiences growing up in a predominately white culture and how that shaped how she saw herself. Annemarie says that as a child she wanted to be more prominent in her black culture, but having spent more time with her white mother growing up molded another perspective.Segment 4The final segment starts with the show coming back from break and Annemarie sharing how her experience influences the work she does. Annemarie says the war between either or, black or white, this or that, she experiences in her body, life, and very existence. This war between choosing one or the other has taught her that now more than ever we need to come together. Annemarie says that a main contributor to understanding race even in her adult life is her daughter.

To Be Real: Living Authentically As A Black and Gay Man
During a speech at Harvard University in 1982, black lesbian poet Audre Lorde said, “If I didn’t define myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive." Her words are chilling, powerful, and wise. Far too many people live under the constraints and expectations of others, particularly when their very life and livelihood depend on it as it does for many Black Indigenous People Of Color (BIPOC) in America. Choosing to live authentically is freeing but not without consequences. Join Dismantle Racism with the Rev. Dr. TLC as she engages her guest, the Rev. Carlton E. Smith, on what it means to live authentically as a black and gay man. Rev. Smith reflects on the dangers that come with living as a black man such as being stopped and held at gunpoint by the police, the unconscious racial bias that exists within the LGBTQ+ community, the complexities of being a spiritual leader, and the uphill battles of running for political office. Longtime friends and colleagues who grew up in the state of Mississippi, Rev. Dr. TLC and Rev. Smith will share stories, insights, and powerful examples of how to live authentically.Tune in for this important conversation at TalkRadio.nyc or watch the Facebook Livestream by Clicking Here.Show NotesSegment 1 The first segment starts with Rev Dr. Terrlyn introduces today's show and guest.

Dr. Terrlyn then starts the first conversation with letting Rev Carlton E Smith go into a detailed description of his professional background. Rev Carlton E Smith says that a lesson he learned in his career is that there's an illusion of race and we should not give into it. He explains that there is an underlying connectivity of the human race and if we decided to focus on that we could start to make some progress in race relations. Rev. Dr. Terrlyn affirms what Rev Carlton E Smith says about race relations, but adds that black people and people of color shouldn't be fooled by the illusion of race. There very much should still be a vigilant approach to their everyday lives in an effort to protect themselves.Segment 2The second segment opens with Rev. Dr. Terrlyn bringing the show back up from break. Rev Carlton E Smith then explains what it means to him to live authentically as a gay, black man. He goes into amazing detail of his early life always feeling like the outcast or the kid who never fit in. Rev Carlton E Smith says that him being ostracized at such an early age by his peers, church, and some family, led him to easily transition into a homosexual lifestyle. While he felt he was living authentically as himself, other parts of society were still trying to oppress him. This drove him deeper into his religion because that’s where he felt the most authentic.Segment 3The third segment starts with Rev Dr Terrlyn opening the discussion to Rev Carlton E Smith’s experiences living simply as a black man in the United States. Rev Carlton E Smith says that his relationship with racism begins at a very young age. Some of his earliest memories of having to deal with racism go back to the third grade.

Rev Carlton E Smith says that as soon as he decided to live authentically, his political career changed, but his life changed. While hardships still occurred, he felt like he was better equipped with dealing the societal backlash with this feeling of authenticity.

The noted author and advocate for racial justice, James Baldwin, said that "We are trapped in our history, and our history is trapped in us."Many of us carry around narratives that are based on our collective racial consciousness and our individual experiences. We make meaning of who we are and who we believe others to be based on these experiences. It is often difficult to shift these narratives, particularly when our experiences are steeped in pain, fear, distrust, and more.Join Rev. Dr. TLC and her guest Kim Fuller on the next episode of Dismantle Racism. They will explore the ways in which we remain stuck in our racial narratives and how these narratives, often, do not serve our best interest. Kim's passion and experience as a photographer, story-teller, and adoptive mother fuel her desire to bridge the racial divide by transforming our personal narratives which leads to self-awareness, personal healing, and reaching across racial lines.Tune in for this important conversation at TalkRadio.nyc or watch the Facebook Livestream by Clicking Here.Show NotesSegment 1The show opens with Rev.

Racial Battle Fatigue
The Hidden Cost of Being Black (BIPOC) in AmericaMay 25, 2021 marked one year since the murder of George Floyd. Around the country, people held services of remembrance. These commemorations came shortly on the heels of the trial of the man who murdered him, Derek Chauvin. For many people who are black and others, the vicious murder, the trial, and the commemorations are traumatizing. Watching the video of his murder as well as reliving this experience and other acts of violence against people of color (along with the day to day microaggressions) create anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues.Join Rev.

Dr. Terrlyn says that the upsurge in people needing therapy is so great that most people can't find one. Dr. Rosell adds that there are plenty of ways to seek out a therapist with specific conditions and that may help someone find the help they need.

It marked the beginning of mass awakening for white people to see the trauma experienced every single day by Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC).In the premier episode of Dismantle Racism, Rev. Dr. TLC, the host and her guest, Dr. Anita Sanchez, will discuss our complicated history of race and how racism is steeped into the fabric of our society.
