S1E4: How the Colored Girl Beautiful Finds Purpose

Season 1 | Episode 4
25m | Nov 12, 2019

In this episode Aseloka reflects on Madame Hackely's writings about racial responsibility and Aseloka's own conflicts between wanting to do all that she can for the race, while also staying sane. She'll debrief these feelings with this week's guest, Heather Smith, who will share how a late night Youtube rabbit hole, a trip to Brazil, and her experiences as a chef, led her to better understand her racial responsibility.
