In today’s episode, we will be talking a little bit about the Derek Chauvin trial and the bitter-sweet feeling over it. Even though the verdict leaves us with relief and sweet emotion, the fact that we have so much more work to do regarding racism is the bitter part of it.
We will also be discussing what it is like to have a “Black card” and how easily it can feel like we’re losing it if we don’t fit the “expectations.”
Erica speaks about hilarious experiences, like trying to join a Facebook group for Black women and actually having to ask her husband and friends about the correct answers to be able to be a part of the group..
