Ayisha Elliott hosts the podcast Black Girl From Eugene, and runs Black Gold Culture Camp, a camping experience for BIPOC kids which emphasizes the positive attributes and contributions of Africian American/Black People to American society.
She is also the founder of Race Equity Matters, where she leads conversations and trainings on deconstructing white supremacy, and how to be Anti-racist.
And in her spare time (HA! She has no spare time!) Ayisha is writing a book.
In this episode, Ayisha shares her own experience with police abuse, and her pursuit of racial equity and inclusion. This poignant conversation is definitely one worth listening to.
In this episode, Adam interviews Springfield resident Athena Delene. She is a professional photographer who started and stayed local. You will often find her at local gatherings capturing those enduring moments with her uncanny ability of becoming a fly on the wall.
As a self proclaimed people person she uses photography to capture the underlying essence of a person’s personality. She relates this to why she loves to live in the Eugene/Springfield Area and her love of learning the craft.
