What a great podcast. Honest and much needed conversations about race without judgement.

Patricia Montgomery, Esq. ,

Colorblind is good conversation on racism.

Great conversation that did not pretend to have answers to racism, but provided good insight and personal views.

NutrientDense ,

Colorblind is captivating.

Raw honesty about race is hard to find. Vanessa Echols should be called the “race whisperer”. With her heavenly voice, she comfortably carries the audience on this new journey about race. This is a new movement of kindness and unity like I have never previously witnessed. Martin Luther King, Jr. And George Washington would be equally proud as to how this is taking the human race to new heights.
