FLOURISH with Larkspur – Race Relations with Yvonne Cole

In an effort to keep this topic at the forefront, our second episode in our FLOURISH with Larkspur series of the podcast discusses the sensitive topic of race again.  This time I sit down and chat with Yvonne Cole, the longtime coach of the Lindbergh Flyerettes and Missouri Dance Team Association founder and board member, who gave us all kinds of dance team wisdom during a Season 1 episode.  This time we engage in some very real and honest talk about the social, racial and civil unrest that has been brought to the forefront by recent events in our country, and she gives her viewpoint as a person of color.  We’re both hoping that this will open up all kinds of dialogue and will inspire other people to have more conversations like this.

In light of this desire to keep this conversation going, we’ve started a book club!  Please join us in reading Stamped From The Beginning by Ibram X. Kendi, recommended by Iris Sherman in our first FLOURISH episode to help us all become more educated and mindful when it comes to issues dealing with race in our country.  We will have Iris back on in a couple of months to discuss the book, and would love to hear your input!  You can reach out to melanie@larkspurdance.com, and you can also find us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.  Hope you join us!
