Season 5 E4: Engaging with Issues of Race in our Daily Lives: The What and the So What - Sage B. Hobbs
Season 5 E4: Engaging with Issues of Race in our Daily Lives: The What and the So What


In today’s episode, we have a very particular conversation around Black-ish, an American sitcom television series created by Kenya Barris. Black-ish generates a conversation through the lens of race in daily life and makes us question if comedy is an effective way of talking about what truly matters.

In this show we're talking about:

  • A brief description of the scene that got us talking about a sitcom’s impact on a serious matter like race.
  • What we felt while watching it. Was it okay to laugh?
  • How humor might be an effective way to reach out to people and encourage people to research and investigate more on those subjects that matter.
  • Why you should not be quiet when it comes to talking about your point of view.

Some of the most exciting pieces you will find in this episode are also women’s points of view when discussing these racial matters and interesting facts regarding the percentage of black and white people who watch the show.

Thank you for listening to the show. It is such an honor to have these conversations with you. They are necessary and needed and we are here to do the work.

Xo, Sage & Erica
