    Take a quick sojourn into the life of Sarah Baartman, AKA The Venus Hottentot. Sarah's story is one that touches on racism, misogyny, scientific racism and the ongoing over-sexualization of black women's bodies, particularly through the white male gaze. Hers is an important name and story to know.

    Ida & Fannie & Technical Difficulties

    Welcome to the inaugural episode of So, What Had Happened Was! In this first episode we explore the lives and achievements of Ida B. Wells and Fannie Lou Hamer, two black, civil rights activists separated by nearly 50 years. We also casually ignore unexpected technical difficulties, discuss Kanye's run for president and Will & Jada's "entanglement".
