Listen to the December 8, 2022 show:
December’s Black Talk features author, creative, activist, Nyasha Williams. She is the author of the newly published and available Black Tarot: An Ancestral Awakening Deck and Guidebook. Join us as we learn about her upbringing in South Africa and Louisville, Colorado.
Nyasha was one of six Black children in her family being raised by white parents. In her mid-20s, she began to embrace her Blackness, Black woman-ness, and deep exploration of her ancestral roots.
All of the pieces and parts that have influenced Nyasha are infused into the tarot deck she has created. We learn about her ancestral awakening and learn about her past, current, and future artistic efforts. Consider the following as a quote that embodies Nyasha’s perspective on life: The true meaning of life is planting trees under whose shade you do not expect to sit — Nelson Henderson.
Nyasha will appear at the Boulder Bookstore on the evening of 08 December, at 6:30 pm.
