Raising STL

Another pot of tea has been brewed and it is hot! In this episode, your hosts take you all the way to DC. We talk about Rep. Cori Bush taking a stand on the steps of the capitol and break down what an eviction moratorium is and what drove her to fight for it. We also talk through the national response to the hurricane in Louisana and its impact on families.

On Community Spotlight we have a special treat, another podcast mash-up!! This month we partner with Rise Community Development Executive Director Terrell Carter as guests on HIS podcast Communities Forward. As we talk with him you'll hear a little bit more about our story and how Jami has gotten involved with Rise, while also learning about Terrell's vision as the new ED of the organization.

But that's not all!

About the Podcast

BlackTea
Your bottomless cup of empowerment, political education, and black excellence. Every month we spill the tea on all of the latest issues and events...for the culture!
Black Tea is an audio and visual media organization that aims to raise political, social, and cultural awareness while engaging communities in a conversational and
entertaining way.

Our primary project is an educational podcast themed on discussing today's socio-political challenges from the perspective of two young black women. Co-founder Jami holds an undergraduate degree in public policy and a master's degree in global affairs. As a professional, she works in real estate, finance, and community development policy. Co-founder Alisha holds an undergraduate degree in Psychology. As a professional, she works in mental health services.

Our goal is to educate and empower our listeners in as many ways as possible and to help them understand how policies and politics are interwoven in our daily lives. One of the primary goals of Black Tea is to normalize politics, political engagement, and critical thinking around these topics. We will do this through education, dialogue, and the occasional action request (such as voting, letter drives, & census completion.) We aim to leverage our backgrounds, knowledge, and experiences to inspire other individuals to take action, invoke change, and uplift the broader
community.
