Explore the unexamined bias and racial exclusion that continues to be a part of psychedelic culture. With Baba C. Awolowo Johnson, Brother H-Ankh, Steffanie McKee, and A. Karim Darwish. Moderated by Dimitri Mugianis.
Psychedelics are regarded by many as a tool for personal and social transformation. And yet, even at this moment of rising racial tension, the psychedelic community mirrors the white privilege common across much of our society.
What is the role of psychedelics in the current racial atmosphere? Why are the descendants of the indigenous peoples who are the source of profound plant spirit traditions so disconnected from the medicine lineages of their ancestors? What can be done to defend against the cooptation of sacred indigenous traditions by Westerners in search of novel “experiences,” and who exploit these traditions for financial gain?
We explore these questions and more with four deeply knowledgeable experts in a lively, provocative discussion — and we invite you to take part.
