“candi’s work is #genius! I tell the actors, ‘It’s a dance,’ because it is - a #dance of #lust and #power, fire and ice … Neither leading the steps. They flow upon the rhythm of the song ...” ~Mia Kristin Smith

“So pleased, uplifted, and #inspired by this process with WILD & FREE, and always by candi and her #fearless capacity to #dream big. This play creates a dynamic #dance between past and present that #deepens both and #blurs the boundaries between them. candi is a wonder.” ~Rebekah Suellau

“As Assistant Dramaturg, I'd like to first give all the praises to Rebekah, as she was phenomenal! I never really understood how dramaturgy would look in practice and she made every observation, every hurdle very concise and clear. Very easy to hop on board with both of you because of her expertise and attention to detail.” ~Sondai NaNaBuluku

#testimonies from the sandbox …

still incredibly #grateful for WILD & FREE’s #creativeteam - truly blessed beyond measure 🙏🏽

"This month should be a break from the struggle of being Black in a racist world." ~Healthline

What a FABULOUS #idea, from their 2021 article, "Healing Racial Trauma During #BlackHistoryMonth."

Seems like a perfect, intentional time to focus on the one thing we have not done as a people to be free - #heal.

"Struggle is a never ending process. Freedom is never really won, you earn it and win it in every generation." ~Coretta Scott King

Whenever we're disappointed, we have to adjust our expectations.

On #MLKDay, it's helpful to remember Mrs. King's words when we lament that generations later, we're fighting the same fights that we believed our ancestors won.

How can we earn + win freed-dom in #thisgeneration?

#ItStartsWithMe is the theme for #KingDay 2022

What a stark time! to remember a sacrificial legacy dedicated to the freedom of a people

The reality is that he was not the first person to leave their lives for a cause that seems ever to elude permanent repair

Of what's broken.

Let's not let him be the last ...

We can leave behind our lives by allowing them to be about more than our individuality -- to become about all of us.

And that begins by healing within. 1 place to begin (or continue) your inner healing journey is with our 4-week, on-demand, online mini-course, "1st Step to Free Yourself."

For the 3-day #KingWeekend, it's 33% off, and the next class begins on Tues., 2.1 - perfect for #BlackHistoryMonth 👊🏽
