Fare of the Free Child

By Akilah S. Richards

Fare of the Free Child is a weekly podcast-turned-community centering People of Color in liberation-centered living and learning practices. With a particular interest in unschooling and the Self-Directed Education movement, Akilah and special guests discuss the fears and the fares (costs) of raising free Black and Brown children in a world that tends to diminish, dehumanize, and disappear them. Connect on Twitter and Instagram using our hashtags: #BIPOCinSDE #raisingfreepeople
