JADE PERRY - RECLAIMING SELF-CARE
Jade Perry is a mystic and activist who writes about the intersections of race, spirituality and chronic illness. As a tarot card reader, emerging herbalist, and multimedia artist, Jade wears many hats. Jade also always wears tasteful glasses. In this episode, Jade talks about the fluidity of disability, an experimental strip class, and her grandmother’s style of resistance.
