Anastasia Higginbotham shares WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW: A Story of Liberated Childhood. It wasn’t that long ago that Anastasia joined me on the podcast to talk about NOT MY IDEA: A Book About Whiteness. Anastasia gets right to the heart of conversations, always working to secure the dignity, humanity, and power of her readers, our children. She talks about kids being raised by people who know what the world is and, in the process, how it feels to sweat every detail in crafting a story of liberated childhood. This, my friends, is a conversation I am so proud of, and one I hope connects deeply with you (and sticks with you long after).

ON TODAY'S EPISODE (#655):
Anastasia Higginbotham's What You Don't Know: A Story of Liberated Childhood delves into queerness, Blackness, and the love that dismantles whiteness.
It's a book about knowing deeply that you matter--always did, always will. It's a book about what schools get wrong and churches don't say; but institutions are made by people and the people are evolving. It's a book about being known and cherished by family, and living in communion with your own personal Jesus, Buddha, Spirit, Source, Father, Mother, God, breath, inner space, outer space, nothingness, and however else we name and relate to our divinity and humility in the presence of all we don't know.
