A black woman with white hair in an afro smiles at the camera. She is wearing big, dangling gold circles as earrings, glasses with a green marbled frame, red-orange lipstick and a multi-colored short turtleneck with horizontal stripes.

Omisade Burney-Scott

Omisade Burney-Scott (she / her) is a Black southern 7th-generation native North Carolinian feminist, social justice advocate and creative with decades of experience in nonprofit leadership, philanthropy and social justice.

She has worked with WUNC on many projects, including as guest host of Embodied.

  • Anita turns the mic over to guest host Omisade Burney-Scott to explore the many ways folks are raising kids outside the nuclear family unit. First, Omi talks with one of her co-parents about their evolution from romantic partners to partners in parenting. Plus, she meets a woman who is part of a four-person parenting structure and hears from someone who is creating resources for folks in blended families.
  • Co-parenting looks different for every family. But at its core, co-parenting can encourage good communication and responsibility-sharing by putting focus on the common interest: the children.
