    Black Women’s Digital Resistance TRANSFORMED!

    Black Women’s Digital Resistance TRANSFORMED!

    On today’s episode, I am talking to Black Feminist Icon and Author, Dr. Moya Bailey. Dr. Bailey coined the term misogynoir in 2010, and since then the term has gone viral. She has an awesome new book out that she’s here to talk about, as well as how the term has taken on a life of it’s own and what that feels like, how people think they know Black women but they have no idea, and what the future holds for misogynoir.

    Lets Get Minimal

    Lets Get Minimal

    Let’s Get Minimal
    Minimalism is a design, lifestyle, and aesthetic trend that is gripping the Nation.  Forced to live with and deal with our stuff while the World was in Lockdown, people are making intentional decisions about how much stuff they need and want to live with.  Mainstream Minimalism imagery can be stark, rigid , and White Washed (both literally and figuratively) leading some to wonder If Minimalism  is for Black People?  Can we carve out a space that feels like it belongs to us in the White Washed world of Minimalism?  On today’s episode, I am sitting down with the Afrominimalist to discuss the answers to these questions as well as talk about her new book, The Afrominimalist’s Guide To Living With Less.

    Classic: Dear White American Theater

    Classic: Dear White American Theater

    Broadway has been rocked, and not in the Queen musical kind of way. This Summer, Broadway BIPOC performers, writers, directors, and technicians banded together and wrote a letter to Broadway calling for change in an effort to make Broadway a more inclusive and actively anti-racist place for all employees. That letter began with the powerful words “Dear White American Theatre.” In this episode, we talk to a culture critic all about how Broadway is dealing with this letter, changes he has seen, and what the future holds for The Great White Way (no pun intended).

So so Excited!

This show is awesome! These women are tackling some amazing stereotypes and topics regarding issues that face women, especially of color and what it is like being a minority!

Wake Yo Self

Eye-Opening. Superb. Brilliant commentary on race relations that is sorely needed today. Serious topics, fun hosts. It will make you laugh and think and cry. Everyone should check out at least one episode.
