Facing The Truth

Facing The Truth

How can we fix a problem if we aren't willing to listen? How can we learn from others if we tell them they can't speak their truth? Truth can be hard to face at times and realizing the world isn't all sunshine and rainbows is a fact we all have to come to grips with at some point. Great art can come from speaking the truth, like Billie Holiday's "Strange Fruit" or Pham Thanh Tam who is among many artists that created beautiful artwork that centers are the horrors of the Vietnam war. Art can be beautiful, tranquil, and full of joy. But art is also scary, painful, raw, and full of sorrow. Sometimes we have to face the good and the bad. The truth will set you free.  --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/harlemlennox/support
