Episode 32: Musings on Mama Harriet with Dr. Iyelli Ichile
A few weeks ago I reached out to my sista Dr. Iyelli Ichile about being on my podcast TiTi Talks. I wanted to talk about warrior women and womanhood as well as incorporating info about Mama Harriet Tubman. Then right before our pre-scheduled call, in a clearly agitated state, #Kanye decided to mention her. Since I don't talk about Kanye, I figured I'd use this moment to focus on the Matron Saint of Black America. If you have posted about Kanye, but haven't posted about the amazing Harriet Tubman, shame on you!
Come sit down and learn more about this dynamic woman from the only podcast that will deliver you something this edutaining. Thank you Dr. Ichile for this enlightening discussion.
