The Ask Your Oldhead Podcast


Askyouroldhead.com is a creative project exploring modern masculinity at the intersection of race, gender, and class. We are specifically interested in capturing the stories of transition from young man to healthy adult. Here you will find a mix of stories, commentary, opinion, exposure, exploration, and a challenge to study your own beliefs and assumptions about manhood. Everything under the Sun is up for investigation, exploration, and discussion. Please laugh, learn, and add on.

Askyouroldhead.com is brought to you by Justice Rajee (@just_ife) and the occasional guest. If you like what you see, hear, and read feel free to share, comment and kick in some cash if the moment takes you.  Keep the conversation going on twitter at @askyouroldhead. Peace

Refuge is a place where one can be safe and rest. This episode is a gathering of my thoughts during my week at the Knoll Farm Better Selves Fellowship. I had a great week, learned a lot, and met some great people. The fellowship was an opportunity to work on a project of my own choosing without having to manage the day to day needs of  my regular life. I wrote, told stories, listened to others and tried my best to let the week happen. Being Black and having nothing to do is still de facto illegal many places in the United States. The reality of having the run of my day without the need to prepare my meals, check my phone, tend to my children and such while trying to lock in on a few of my works was inspiring. Thank you to all the folks at Knoll Farm for providing a space to reflect. Please enjoy. Peace
