LIVE SHOW 12/10!!!! Join Tea with Queen and J. for a LIVE SHOW brought to you by WNYC’s Podcast Mixtape Series on December 10th! We want to see you there! Tix & info:…cast-mixtape/

Queen & J. are two womanist race nerds talking liberation, politics, and pop-culture over tea. Drink up!

On this spot of tea episode… Some of your elders are bigots... yes the Black ones, Black Santa might be satanic, and violence doesn’t always leave a bruise.

This week’s hot list: Queen gets her science and tech on at Werk It festival, what constitutes ‘violence’ and when should we use that term? Black women dismissing other Black women because corporate classism is so fvcking tasty, women are not a monolith (we say this every week, but whateves), white folks who invoke fear cuz terrorism is a white American past-time, Black Santa, consumerism, Afrolatinidad, generational shifts vs bigotry and mad other sh!t.
