Truly hope you enjoy and are inspired by this week’s episode with Imara.
In this chapter, Imara shares her journey of acceptance with her family, and how it’s been traveling and living abroad as a Black woman. She talks about her parents instilling in her an awareness of social issues, and her growing that awareness to engaging with the policy that affects our quality of lives. Imara believes through centering Black women, we will see our way forward to more brilliant lives, not just in America, but in countries around the world. We get into her thoughts about Patti LaBelle’s pies, and how cooking is an act of love for her. She also opens up about her work with TransLash, who is taking on the work to humanize trans people through journalism and storytelling.

Imara enjoys Rhianna’s music, but this quote is something that inspires her journey:
If you hear the dogs, keep going. If you see the torches in the woods, keep going. If there’s shouting after you, keep going. Don’t ever stop. Keep going. If you want a taste of freedom, keep going.Harriet Tubman
