    Parenting in the African Diaspora: Did Our Parents Get It Right?

    Parenting in the African Diaspora: Did Our Parents Get It Right?

    In this virtual panel discussion, we talked about a number of things we felt we didn’t have growing up such as the lack of open communication with our parents, assuming parental responsibilities as children, and the lack of affection. We discussed how these things have impacted us as adults and as parents and how we plan on being more intentional in our own parenting.

Great podcast !

This podcast is a great platform used to discuss topics related to people of the African diaspora. There are so many relatable conversations that make listening worthwhile and I look forward to future podcasts. I also love how the podcast talks about topics that may seem controversial or not openly discussed but the podcast creates a warm, inviting atmosphere for these open discussions. The guests on the podcast also bring great insight to the conversations. Highly recommend !
