Love this podcast!!!!!
Quite literally one of the most informative podcasts I’ve listened to in a minute. With very educated and inspiring hosts! 11/10 would recommend.
REQUIRED listening for white allies
As white allies, we have responsibilities. We must educate ourselves, acknowledge and deconstruct implicit biases, and begin to conceptualize our role in dismantling white supremacy. This podcast is required listening for anyone but speaking to my fellow white allies looking seriously at doing this work...it is on US to seek out resources and educate ourselves. Listen!!!
Black Love! ✊🏾
This podcast makes me feel right at home. Love that this is a space dedicated to Black folks and in solidarity to the fight against patriarchy and white supremacy! Beautifully orchestrated podcast y’all! Keep it up!
