A Black Man in America

This is a powerful episode with two men I admire very much, my husband Ron and David, the best man in our wedding (and one of his closest friends). Hear them tell gripping stories of encounters with the police, their fears for their children, "friendships" lost over Black Lives Matter and the change they hope to see.

This is one of the most emotional episodes I've ever done.

**PLEASE NOTE: There is one use of the "N" word as they tell the story of an experience that they had with a classmate.**

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.
