Black Fam 2.5 is a student-run podcast focused on redefining the minority experience by ensuring to represent it accurately. By featuring Black stories and accomplishments, we aim to address topics that reflect the complexities and vibrancies of the Black community on campus. As Black women, we understand the difficulties in finding reliable media outlets that can identify with the struggles of being a person of color. At the University of California, we make up no more than 2.5%–our stories get lost. Our goal is to not only encourage minorities to tell their stories, but we also pledge to tell narratives that inform others , and inspire difficult conversations that matter.
