A Black Girl's View

This is me guys! Talking about my feelings about what's been going on over the past few months. It's been a heavy weight and I have loved having the podcast to listen to others and know I am not alone.

A few mentions:

In the podcast I mention a story about a police officer who lost her pension and her job after trying to stop a colleague from using a chokehold on a black man. Here is the story:

I also mention my blog post from a few months ago about This Land. Just in case you want to read it:

About the Podcast

In My Shoes Podcast
You don't know what it's like until you've been In My Shoes
In My Shoes is a podcast about women of color and the issues we face but sometimes don't get to talk about. We will give our perspective, allowing you a glimpse into what it's like to deal with racism, infertility, mental illness, parenting, relationships, colorism, politics, hair, health, you name it - in our shoes.

Sometimes it just takes a moment to hear a personal story to realize things aren't always the way they seem. When you hear someone's personal story you can see things through their eyes, from their perspective, even if it's just for a moment - but that moment may be all it takes to change the way you think about or view women from other cultural backgrounds and skin tones. Walk a mile in my shoes, and find out things aren't always the way they seem.
