First in Future: North Carolina’s Poet Laureate – Jaki Shelton Green

Summary: This episode of First in Future, we hear from North Carolina’s Poet Laureate, Jaki Shelton Green. She speaks to our hearts with a message about our personal power to connect to something important within ourselves and to the power we have in common cause with each other. She noted that historically pandemics have been times for radical change and a chance to move through a gateway to new kinds of thinking.
We wanted you to hear her words with the message that she called “harvesting light and grace”, as you go over the river and through the woods for the holidays or even if you’re staying at home. This holiday season. These are words of healing and hope.
