We use storytelling as a tool and a strategy towards structural change.

With Emotional Justice, we define storytelling as ‘contemporary lived experience within a global historical context centering race and gender.’

2023 – 2028



This is an Emotional Justice project on global racial healing across the Continent and the diaspora. It engages drum, dramatization and dialogue.

This project’s focus:-

  • Intergenerational dialogue

  • Notions of Belonging

  • Narratives of Power


History is about more than dates, information and statistics; history is about silence and absence, how the information that is not shared shapes, influences, and hurts even if the mission is healing and protection.  



Harm is not solely about the history that shapes us, it is about the toll of this history of oppressive systems, and how that toll manifests in how we see ourselves and each other; and how that seeing manifests in how we lead, work, learn. We engage ritual to identify harm, ancestral tradition of the talking drum mixed with the Emotional Justice framework to develop ‘the healing drum, as part of a process to engage a cleansing after identifying the toll and its havoc.



Healing is process and practice; it is each demographic doing our emotional work of unlearning the language of whiteness, and learning the Emotional Justice love languagesto create humanity-centered cultures.


the 1952 project™

On Empire & Colonialism

Loss : Legacy : Grief : Healing

Africa: The Caribbean: England



'the 1952 project' identifies, explores, examines and interrogates the toll of Empire and Colonialism on who we – Black and white – became, and how that becoming shapes how we – Black and white - see ourselves and each other, how that seeing shapes an identity – a national, cultural, and personal identity. The 1952 project's focus will be Africa, the Caribbean and England. The project is named for the year the Queen's reign began. Her death in September 2022 marks the end of her reign, and offers crucial space to embark on this racial healing project.  


The 1952 project has four themes: Loss, Legacy, Grief, Healing. The project's aim is to center the narrative of the colonized, and their descendants, name the loss, legacy, grief of Empire and Colonialism, for the purpose of beginning an emotional reckoning, and to begin a racial healing. The death of the Queen ignited wall to wall coverage, and a vicious backlash against those who rejected privileging the Queen and her white family’s narrative over that of  the colonized and their descendants’ narrative. While Colonialism and Empire has fallen, the legacy remains – one major element of that legacy is the emotional connection that centers a language of whiteness. The emotional collapse of Empire and Colonialism severs this connection, centralizes the colonized and their descendants, and initiates our healing, by articulating the truth of this legacy and its deadly lie of white supremacy that permeates Africa, the Caribbean and England.  


The wall to wall coverage whitewashes history, disappears Colonialism’s brutality, absolves itself, and diminishes the history and lived experience of the colonized, and their descendants. Healing requires undoing harm, undoing harm requires naming, identifying legacy, toll, and truth of those colonized and their descendants.


The 1952 Project is created to become an educational tool, an Emotional Justice resource to expand knowledge and understanding about Empire and Colonialism via a narrative that decenters whiteness.. It will be mixed media: Podcast, Essays, Theatre and Music. It is in partnership with The Radical Books Collective and will feature the work, creativity, stories of Educators, Scholars, Journalists, Artists, Musicians, and Writers. The 1952 Project is inspired by The 1619 Project by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Nikole Hannah-Jones.
