Congratulations to Sammy for her commission to produce the latest Apples & Snakes Homecooking podcast.

Sammy was inspired to create this project on the subject of Trauma Genes after studying and responding to Audre Lorde’s poem “Litany for Survival” during our recent #StatesOfViolence 5-day intensive arts/activism course at the Stephen Lawrence Centre.

This spoken word collaboration is made up of original pieces from Shake! participants and London-based poets featuring contributions from Wangu, Nicole, Haneen, Sai and Zena.

Sammy describes the podcast “opening up conversation on the subject of inherited trauma from a limitless number of viewpoints…” and intends to follow up with an event on the same theme.
