In today’s episode, host D-Rich is joined in conversation with two special guests Dr. Trina A. Lynch-Jackon and Stephanie James to discuss how they share and honor culture through art and travel.

 

Growing up, Dr. Trina A. Lynch-Jackson had always admired her uncle. For much of her life, Dr. Trina looked forward to the visits she would have with her uncle where he would explain his experiences about culture through pieces of artwork. After he passed away, Dr. Trina has made it her life's mission to respect and honor his legacy by continuing to share his work around the world. 

 

For Stephanie, the best way to learn about the world is by seeing it. After taking her first couple trips outside of the US, Stephanie knew she needed to find a way to devote her life to traveling full time. Throughout her many years of traveling, Stephanie has always appreciated the people she has met along the way the most. To better honor her experiences and shed light on black cultures around the world, Stephanie writes and shares poetry about how to embrace the beauty in our differences. 

 

Tune into this week’s episode of Southern Soul Live Stream - Podshow to learn more about how traveling and preserving art are the key to celebrating culture and preserving family legacy. 

 

Quotes

• “One of the most important things is celebrating the arts because the arts during these difficult times suffered. Many of us were not able to support the arts, Broadway shut down, movie theaters shut down. But I continue to celebrate and praise the arts, especially for my people of color.” (04:13-04:39 | Dr. Trina A Lynch-Jackson)

• “I would travel to see my uncle and I would have deep conversations with him as well and he knew that I would honor and respect all the work that he has done.” (10:41-10:54 | Dr. Trina A. Lynch-Jackson)

• “I'm also an entrepreneur so I believe in generating money because I want to be able to continue to share his story.” (12:36-12:46 | Dr. Trina A. Lynch-Jackson)

• “I want my listening audience to understand how important it is to prepare, and to cherish and to honor your family.” (17:45-17:54 | Dr. Trina A. Lynch-Jackson) 

• “Everything about traveling is meeting different people around the world and gaining a different perspective. I think travel is the best life coach that you can have.” (25:36-25:46 | Stephanie James)

• “I think what I love so much about travel is the richness in our differences, and how much our differences can actually be similarities as well.” (26:39-26:48 | Stephanie James)

• “The concept of the show Changing Tourism is to highlight the black indigenous people of color in different countries around the world and give them a platform to tell stories that would otherwise remain untold.” (31:12-31:35 | Stephanie James)
