You Deserve Better Conversations: Start Here
HERD-LESS with Salomé ft. Ayishat Akanbi & Africa Brooke
As a black sheep, you probably often feel herd-less. When you’re more interested in pursuing your curiosity than appeasing a group, you’ll often find yourself feeling like you have no group. This experience is more common than it seems. In our new show HERD-LESS with Salomé, produced in partnership with Revolution of One, Salomé has conversations with other black sheep who’ve found their way out of collective dysfunction and into successful individuality.
We’re thrilled to share with you our very first episode, “Uncensored & Unbothered” featuring guests Ayishat Akanbi and Africa Brooke.
Most black sheep realize they’re black sheep from trying to be themselves around others who are unable to tolerate curiosity, openness and honesty. Having conversations without defensiveness or instant judgement is energizing for black sheep. This conversation with the uniquely refreshing Ayishat Akanbi and Africa Brooke is an example of the depth and connection that comes from valuing genuine self-expression.
Identifying and letting go of destructive beliefs
Pursuing genuine values instead of the tribe’s approval
How social media influences our identity
Speaking honestly despite the fear of backlash
Identifying when you’re in a dysfunctional community
This isn’t just another conversation to enjoy hearing people that you already agree with—it’s a step towards building a dominant culture where curiosity and mature dialogue are the norm. In this new culture, authoritarian conversation tactics (like those The Black Sheep guest essayist Will Reusch wrote about last week) become obviously undesirable.
As reader of The Black Sheep, we need your help to create this society by watering the seeds that it will grow from.
