#86: Act with Urgency, Damn It ft. Stephie Gumbs

Often the story of minority communities gets lost throughout history, but the legacy of these groups continues to influence the present. In this episode of the chattabox, Stephie Gumbs (@stephie.ig) , co-host of the Mele podcast and advocate of St. Maarten history and culture, shares the importance of understanding our roots and how she stays engaged in building and protecting St. Maarten culture. Stephie shares her journey returning to the island and what sparked her love of St. Maarten's history and culture. We dive into Carnival, the influence of radio on the culture, the privilege of having a cataloged history, and the threat of cultural genocide due to climate change. When we remember history, we often focus on the achievers, and rarely the beings. Stephie highlights the gift of celebrating every day and how we have to have gratitude for just being. What roles we play within our community help curate a symphony of experience, do not desensitize yourself to it.
