Grieving My Blackness (Episode 16)
I know. I know. I’ve been MIA. I’ve wanted to take up space here, but have feared coming off as “the angry black woman.” Over the past few weeks I have come to terms with the fact that I’ve been grieving.

Little Fires Everywhere with Jenaye Arbelo-Figueroa, Ann Givens & Carmelita Rogers (Episode 14)
Based on Celeste Ng's 2017 bestseller, "Little Fires Everywhere" follows the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and the enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives. In this episode, we look take a look at the theme of motherhood in this series. This series is full of so many themes that include: motherhood, surrogacy, race, class, sexuality, art, adolescence, choice/abortion, finance, white matriarchy, etc. However, this month the focus is motherhood. In this conversation, if you've seen the series for yourself, you will know we were not able to capture even half the conversations we could've had on motherhood. However, we got the conversation rolling. There are definitely spoilers in this episode, so if you have not watched the series and plan to, you will want to hold off on listening to this conversation. Enjoy!

The Courage to Stay with Anjuli Paschall (Episode 10)
In this episode I welcome last week's WCW, Anjuli Paschall. She recently released her first book, Stay. Here is a little note about her book: "As women, we are exhausted. Our hearts are being wrung out to dry--squeezed and yanked in every direction. We take care of everyone but ourselves. We've gotten lost in bedtime routines and our Costco lists. We have lost our voices in the storm of everyday life. We need to be reminded to reach inward and heed the quiet voice whispering, Stay." There was so much goodness in this episode, I hope you all will take a moment to listen in as we discuss trauma, friendships and courage! You can find Anjuli...
