Social Activism and Spiritual Practice

Three years after the murder of her husband and birth of her daughter, former Black Panther Party leader Ericka Huggins found herself unjustly imprisoned and placed in solitary confinement. it was here that she taught herself meditation and embarked on a path that 37 years later has made her a leading exemplar of the integration of spirituality and social activism. 

Here, Huggins shared what she learned about herself while in solitary confinement, the legacy of the Black Panther Party, and the importance of spiritual practice for social justice work. She talks about restorative justice, how it succeeds where while punitive measures fail, and how this work can be used in schools and prisons to stop what she calls the cradle-to-prison pipeline endemic to poor communities. 

For Huggins, the "most healing thing in the world is love." And she attempts to put that into practice in her work for social justice. What helps her in her work is her daily spiritual practice, the details of which she shares in this podcast.
