S05 E02: Lalita Yeldell Sylvers (author): “Circumcision of a Wounded Heart”

We welcomed Lalita Yeldell Sylvers to the show to discuss her new book Circumcision of a Wounded Heart: An Unjust Journey Due to Systemic Racism, Classism, & Oppression.

Lalita was in for the ride of her life when a terrible head-on collision ended in tragedy. With two people dead, one injured, and Lalita fighting for her life and unconscious for almost a month; she woke to a complete nightmare.

With broken arms and legs, memory loss, a shattered pelvis, and a ruptured liver, it was just the beginning of her world being turned upside down. While the worst was yet to happen, Lalita had no idea of the hell she was about to face.

With crooked police, prosecutorial overzealousness, and an unjust legal and judicial system, Lalita landed in prison for crimes she did not commit. After trying to overcome obstacles of racism, classism, and oppression, she looked to God for answers through prayer, which led her to truth and understanding… helping her to find peace.

We talked about the brokenness of the U.S. Judicial System – especially were women and women of color are concerned. And we discussed ways that this systemic injustice can be addressed pro-actively.
