Barbie-Danielle DeCarlo

About Me: 

I engage and transmit academic and experiential learning through transformational media+art that inspires change. Passionate about sharing equity education with diverse audiences, I have served as a world music director, audio documentary producer, on-air host, and racial justice facilitator, and currently co-produce Color Commentary on KSER public radio.

I have deep interests related to healing and transforming historical trauma and harms through genealogy activism and the arts. I enjoy the heartfelt connection of linking descendants of families who share histories of enslavement (on all sides) and believe that this work has a transformative quality, and that each of our families’ legacies are intertwined publicly and privately by ‘race’ and its personal, structural, and institutional ramifications. I am firmly committed and connected to efforts that focus on thinking critically about ‘race’ and power, and how we relate to each other on a human and heart level. Through facilitation of various media arts and contemplative practice(s), I am devoted to drawing connections between academic disciplines and practical experiential wisdom of humanity.

While I've been in various leadership positions, I give infinite gratitude to those leaders who have helped shape my life in countless ways. I've had a great number of life experiences, and it brings me great joy to share the love and possibilities of life. Above all, I am grateful to the Ancestors for being able to serve communities worldwide.
