Queen & J. are two womanist race nerds talking liberation, politics, and pop-culture and over tea. Drink up!
On this episode… We recap the Black Baddie Brigades podcast experience at SXSW, explore some “tragic mulatto” shit, and appropriation vs appreciation, do you n*ggas know the difference?
This week’s hot list: We came, we saw, we destroyed all things SXSW, Amirah Vann kills it on HTGAWM, the great Bruno Mars debate, sister circles are everything you didn’t know you needed, J. is still not a lady, pay Black women, who are you talking to and what gaze are you most concerned with? Who gets access to conferences like SXSW and why? The targeted deportation of undocumented activists, and as always you are enough!
