On October 31st, host David Bell speaks with Dr. Nicole D Price, CEO of Lively Paradox, about the book, “My Grandmother’s Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending our Hearts and Bodies” by Resmaa Menakem. Throughout their discussion, they utilize the book to discuss the importance of educating our community on the racial trauma that every American should work to heal.

We pride ourselves on digging in and sharing the issues that entertain and inform our listeners by providing a curated, unique and independent voice. Remember, KKFI is supported by our listeners, local businesses and organizations that share our mission.

If you share KKFI’s mission of providing an independent voice to music and information underserved or ignored by mainstream media, consider becoming a Sustaining Member today.

On Jaws of Justice, we examine how to find justice in our society.  Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.
