As the Incense Burns – Season 1: Episode 16

Episode 31: Those echoes of Juneteeth and letters to the Ancients As the Incense Burns 🔥

On this episode I discuss notions of being free and a lesson gifted from my Uncle, as I read from a letter that I wrote to my Ancestors in 2019, pushing back against the idea of confining honor to the narrow boundaries of a single day. I learned that when the power of love is juxtaposed against history and the ugliness of humanity that freedom is an omnipresent battle that we cannot afford to lose. — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. — Send in a voice message: Support this podcast:

I allude to being pushed out of the car after being knocked unconscious by the airbag (photo inset)…. by my Aunt and Grandma, some photography from the aftermath and a photograph of them that I found afterwards that served as a confirmation.
