Deanna Deacon is Disrupting Societal Norms

Deanna Deacon is Disrupting Societal Norms

November 24, 2020

In the first ever 'all-female' Disruptor Series episode, Asha Davis has a candid conversation with Author, Empowerment Coach, Motivational Speaker and Intuitive Healer - Deanna Deacon.

Listen as Deanna discusses her new book: Feminine Warrior - Your Guide To Intuition & Feminine Wisdom and shares insights on how we can all use this moment in time to reflect and reset to ensure we're leading our most empowered lives. 

To our male listeners, don't let the "Woman Power" exuded in this interview lead you to believe that this episode isn't for you.  In fact, allow us to 'Disrupt the Societal Norms' that dictate what women and men 'should or shouldn't' care about.

 

Deanna Deacon Quotables:

"Every being that is alive has both masculine and feminine energy."

"...(We) have been leaning towards our masculine energy as a collective society.... As a culture we value so much, the productivity, the outcome, exactly what we’re going to get out at the end of us putting in that effort... If you focus all of your energy on that there’s not actually achievement."

"...balance both energies, the feminine being more of the present moment, the joy, the stopping to smell the roses...coming more into that creative nature within you where you can find solutions without having to seek them"

The Tuskegee Airmen are Disrupting History

The Tuskegee Airmen are Disrupting History

November 10, 2020

In a very special episode to commemorate Veteran's Day 2020, Doug Melville interviews Brigadier General Leon Johnson, president of Tuskegee Airmen inc. to gain further insight into the legendary brigade and discuss the #FlyLikeThem campaign.

History has often ignored the contributions of Black Americans, leaving heroes like the Tuskegee Airmen, the first Black military pilots, overlooked. They flew nearly 1,500 missions and shot down 112 German aircraft. These men flew above prejudice, racism and hate to serve their country and drive positive change in America.  

Lucasfilm & TBWA\Chiat\Day New York have launched an educational initiative and social media campaign to provide resources to students and educators.

Using the hashtag #FlyLikeThem, Lucasfilm will share quotes from the Airmen, highlight facts from their World War II experiences and encourage everyone to share personal stories inspired by their heroic examples.  

“What the Tuskegee Airmen did is not Black history, it’s not military history, it’s American history." - Brig. Gen. Leon Johnson, President Tuskegee Airmen inc.
