GETTING FREE IS A DAILY PRACTICE ROOTED IN ABUNDANCE AND POSSIBILITY. 

Emanuel H. Brown, MSW brings humor, embodiment and keen political analysis to your audience. He curates experiences that foster engagement and awakening by weaving together, storytelling, poetry, ritual, and music. As a Black Trans* leader in healing/arts/spiritual (HEARTS) Justice he holds a unique point of view on the praxis of bringing our whole-selves on the journey towards freedom. His integrative approach gained the attention of numerous institutions, and movement spaces and he was invited as a consultant, facilitator, presenter, network weaver, and curator for Auburn Seminary, Faith Matters Network, St. Luis University Institute for Healing Justice and Equity, Harvard Law School, Yale University, Move to End Violence, Allied Media Conference, National Sexual Assault Conference, and Facing Race. Emanuel's creative works include A Ritual for Reading featured in the Invisible No More Study Guide,  Nu Mas(k)ulinities Performance Ritual for The Commons Festival at Carolina Performing Arts, Rituals of Desire featured in The 8th Annual New Masculinities Festival,  co-editor of Wakanda Dream Lab, author Radical Relationships Devotional Series featured on Our Bible App, and contributor to the We Govern Campaign.
