Halloween: The back story

Get this. Education is a never-ending process so when it comes to the week ahead it’s no different. Over the past year I’ve had the opportunity to connect with three amazing women. It’s been a powerful journey and I’m looking forward to lots more. These sistahs have hipped me to the back story (ourstory if you will) of many of the mainstream Western holidays. Although I was aware of some things there was so much that I didn’t know. Talk about a humbling experience. My gosh! I am grateful and I am still digging. Heehee. Here are some clips of one phenomenal woman. Know that she is by no means a neophyte. She breaks some things down in relation to the significance of Oct.31-Nov.2. Tune in when you have some time.
