Queen & J. are two womanist race nerds talking liberation, politics, and pop-culture and over tea. Drink up!
On this spot of tea episode… we ask all the questions… Should Harriet Tubman’s face be on money? Have you ever met a Black archeologist? Is now a good time for your suicide advise?
This week’s hot list: Kim Kardashian talks to her little friend and bails a Black woman out of prison, new Kenyan film “Rafiki” centers queer women, Harriet Tubman and Dr. Martin Luther King’s debut on US currency paused under Trump (plot twist, this is probably a good thing; hear us out), finding a supportive academic community when it looks like there ain’t none to be found, Anthony Bourdain’s posthumous invitation to the cookout, and mad other sh!t
Trigger warning for suicide discussion:
Segment begins @ 1:00:00
