Relationships Abroad: Carolyn van Es Vines on Black and (A)broad (A)broad in Education

    • Places & Travel

Welcome to the first episode of Relationships (A)Broad. It's a series where I take you through individual stories from Black women who transnationalized their relationships while transforming their understanding of what it means to love and be loved.

This week I'm joined by Carolyn van es Vines, author of the book Black and (A)broad: Traveling Beyond the Limitations of Identity. In this episode, Carolyn and I discuss her book and the complexity of her decision to migrate to the Netherlands with her Dutch boyfriend, now husband, Vince.  At the crux of this episode, Carolyn expresses the need for Black women to travel the world in order to process and unpack their identities to (re)imagine what it means to be a strong Black woman.   

Carolyn is an intercultural expert who believes in the power of journaling and declares that "Journaling slows us down so that we can start paying attention to how we're feeling, eventually without judging either the feeling or ourselves." If you want to engage in an "effective way to practice mindfulness," join Carolyn at her virtual Journal With Me  session on September 11, 2021 at 8am CST. You can register here if you're interested! I'll be there!   

(A)Broad in Education is produced by Tiffany Lachelle Smith, Music by Reallionaire Jream. You can access Lady Justice on his Post Cards Album. Music from Epidemic Sound.
