Moji Yai, a birthworker/doula and new unschooling parent, talks about decolonizing the mind, mothering ourselves, and reaching back, Sankofa-style, to access the old wisdom and honor the old traditions that have served women for centuries. Her initiative, Wise African Women, will begin in her come country of Benin, and will be shared via social media, in efforts to reconnect women of color to wellness rituals and knowledge that counter the damaging practices that separate women from culturally-relevant and highly-effective wellness practices. Her work as a doula and liberation-seeker have led her to the decision to keep her daughter free from the confines of public education. Listen in as we talk about getting free, remembering our magic, and mothering in various forms.
