Season Two Preview Episode
On the upcoming season of Sick Empire you’ll hear Branden Janese ask critical questions surrounding Black trauma and centering conversations around healing. What does the path to freedom in healthcare look like for all Black Americans? Season One of Sick Empire exposed the social ills highlighted by the coronavirus. Now, Season Two will focus on the healing steps. Our new season will highlight the ways to heal Black trauma, as well as the history behind Black folx and their forms of healing. We will feature the voices of holistic healers, root workers, doulas, Black financial health experts, nutritionists, prison abolitionists, historians and folx who specialize in treating Black American mental health.
The Coronavirus pandemic exposed the root rot of the American health system and wreaked havoc on the Black community. Where do we go from here? How do we heal ourselves? I’m your host, Branden Janese, and I ask these questions and much more on Season Two of Sick Empire.
Each episode will be a deep dive into the systems of healing practiced by Black Americans. We’ll listen to researchers who record the traumas of being Black in the healthcare system, reiki masters, aquaponic educators, inner-city therapists, Black economic scholars, professors on Black mental health, and many more. You’ll hear a collection of voices that help to answer the question; What’s the future of Black health, wealth, and survival?
