A Conversation (with Café con Chisme!) About Friendship, Anti-Blackness, Ally-ship, and Self-preservation - S1E10 Mejor Sola

    • Self-Improvement

Amores, it’s the end of season one of Mejor Sola and we are closing it out with some of our faves! Join Des and Em as they invite Seb and Yaz from Café con Chisme to talk about their friendship, what it means to be anti-black, how to be an ally to our black siblings, and what they are doing to practice self-preservation.

About Mejor Sola: Des and Em are two Latinx female-identifying storytellers who love deeply...and have had their hearts broken by others. Growing up, there are frameworks for love that are heavily shaped by machismo, religion, culture, and tradition. This kind of love is tied to sacrifice and service. Learning love in this way has made it extremely challenging to make space for self-love and platonic love - love that fuels us and brings us joy and not simply for others. Love for ourselves. Most of all, a love that does not require self-sacrifice in order to be celebrated.

Intro and outro music is “Little Latin Jazz” by oymaldonado.
