Natalie Daise: Sharing Stories (Planting Seeds)

Remember the show Gullah Gullah Island on Nickelodeon from the 90’s? The colorful worlds, songs and stories inspired by the Gullah Geechee culture were created by Adia’s family friend and the show’s creator, Natalie Daise. Spirit to spirit, Natalie and Adia connect over what it means to use stories and songs to more fully step into your own truth. They talk about moving from south to north and back again, and the importance of southern Black folks returning to the dirt, to seeds, and the land. For a playlist of songs curated for this week's episode, http://bit.ly/cr-natalie/ Show Notes / Natalie Daise was the host and creator of Gullah Gullah Island, a children’s show about Gullah Geechee Culture.
