Episode 171 is an interview with author, anti-racism activist, and minimalist Christine Platt. We discuss her new book, The Afrominimalist's Guide to Living with Less, which brings a fresh new perspective to the conversation of minimalism. Platt guides her reader through the sociological and psychological ways in which we form attachments to things and patterns of accumulation, not to tell you to get rid of all your stuff or to only have so many of a given item, but to help you build a home and life that is created with intention. She doesn't shy away from the fact that too often marginalized communities are left out of these types of dialogue, often because minimalism is marketed to well-off cishet white people with a steep price tag, and seeks to create a new kind of inclusive community of minimalists and those who wish to live with less.
