This episode is about how life comes full circle with special relationships. My guest is Jeannie Gilding. She was my nanny when I was an infant through early childhood and we have stayed in touch for over 30 years. We talk about how to maintain lasting relationships and how crazy it is to have stayed in touch all these years.

March of Dimes Episode

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/6278187/height/100/width/480/thumbnail/no/render-playlist/no/theme/custom/tdest_id/640549/custom-color/#87A93A” height=”100″ width=”480″ scrolling=”no” allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen]

My chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha is participating in a March of Dimes event to support mothers and babies. Premature birth is a personal cause I support as I was born extremely early myself. If it wasn’t for the support of the hospital, the NICU, and the use of technology I don’t know where I would be today. 

Description of March of Dimes Event April 22nd from Theta Rho Lambda Website

“Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. proudly supports the March of Dimes in their fight against premature birth and other birth defects. The Theta Rho Lambda Chapter, seated in Arlington County and Alexandria Virginia, asks that you support our team during March for Babies 2018 in Washington, DC.

Every year, half a million babies in the U.S. are born prematurely. Premature birth is the leading cause of newborn death and many lifelong disabilities. The funds we raise in March for Babies support research that saves babies’ lives.”

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/6246062/height/100/width/480/thumbnail/no/render-playlist/no/theme/custom/tdest_id/640549/custom-color/#87A93A” height=”100″ width=”480″ scrolling=”no” allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen]

About a week ago I was interviewed by Jane from Theatre on the Run about my thoughts on race. She was kind enough to give me the interview so that I can share it in full with the Positive Philter listeners. The a portion of the interview will be mixed into a show called “Border” accompanied by dance and music. Below is the description of the show: 

Jane Franklin Dance: Border

Experiences of separation and differences that divide.

Individuals describe borders and boundaries experienced through career, racial, gender or ethnic divide. Some have inspired a redirection of action, aided others or made barriers less significant.  Find threads of bias, isolation and loneliness residing alongside the urge for belonging, told through interviews, movement and visual art.  Set is by Scenic and Projections Designer for Theater and Opera, Jonathan Dahm Robertson.

 
April 13 ? 28, 2018 ? 7:30 pm
Theatre on the Run
