This week on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with Africa Brooke to unpack her open letter that went viral titled “Why I’m leaving the cult of wokeness” and why having the courage to speak our truth is key to chasing our dreams and finding happiness.
In this episode, Africa and Dhru discuss what we sacrifice from self-censorship and why we need layered and nuanced thinking in a convoluted social climate. Africa shares the limitations of binary thinking, how to approach the past with compassion, and why dehumanizing those who don’t share the same opinions is counterproductive to making progress.
If you’re someone who refuses to take a hard stance on complex issues or feels ostracized for not conforming to a particular ideology, Dhru and Africa offer invaluable guidance on finding your voice, fostering growth, and staying true to who you are.
