The new show is hosted by Skywalker of Vibrant Velvet Voice. The first episode tells the story of her deportation and how it contributed to her recognizing a need for a program that bridges the gap between what people think about women of color and what they experience.
Listeners will be able to meet children’s book authors, resilience and life coaches, and online community creators. The program is available on Spreaker, iTunes, and Google Play.
Skywalker Payne is an author and professional oral storyteller, and brings her unique skill set to the podcast.
The new podcast showcases stories from many women of color on an ongoing basis, along with Skywalker’s continuing personal stories, she calls her audio book.
Skywalker states: “This podcast will provide information, ideas, and inspiration for the mature woman of color and anyone who wants to understand the experiences and knowledge of the woman of color.”
The woman of color is a term used in the USA and other western countries to embrace women of African, African-American, Latinx, Middle-Eastern, Asian, Pacific Islands, or Indigenous heritage.
“I was inspired to begin this podcast when my research revealed that the working woman of color continues to experience many of the same biases and challenges I did in my work. As women share their stories we come to recognize our common experiences and challenges. This recognition leads to collaboration to improve life for all women of color.”
“Storytelling has the power to empower individuals, to heal hurts, and reconcile wrongs. Through this podcast, the woman of color is contributing to the creation of conciliation and compassion, so needed in the world today.”
