Queen & J. are two womanist race nerds talking politics, pop-culture and liberation over tea. Drink up!
On this spot of tea episode… We’ve been doing a Black centric podcast for almost four years only to find out that some of you don’t know what Black is or where to start. So we take a deep breath and discuss Amara La Negra, explore Blackness, who gets to claim it, what that sh!t really means in the US & throughout the Black diaspora, and the global anti-Blackness that is not as foreign to Black Americans as they think.
This week’s hot list: That Love & Hip Hop racism, Amara La Negra, xenophobia vs. anti-Blackness vs. colorism, Black identity, the African diaspora, transatlantic slave trade, what is "regular Black", your racial I.Q. and mad other problematic sh!t.
