Be Authentic (with Dr. Yaba Blay) – Episode 44 of Rants & Randomness
My people! Welcome to this episode of Rants & Randomness.Download Episode 44 Transcript
So, I’ve done a few Chat and Chills, where I put on my robe and do a gathering with the dope people of LuvvNation on Friday nights. I have guests on who join me, and we have conversations that are so good! We talk about self-care, play games, we build skin care routines, we just have great conversations.
This episode is one of those amazing conversations. Today, I’m bringing you my chat with Dr. Yaba Blay. If you don’t know her, you need to know her. She is brilliant, she’s hilarious, she’s one of my favorite people.
Dr. Yaba Blay is a scholar-activist, public speaker, and cultural consultant whose work centers on the lived experiences of Black women and girls, with a particular focus on identity/body politics and beauty practices. Lauded by O Magazine for her social media activism, she has launched several viral campaigns including Locs of Love, #PrettyPeriod, and #ProfessionalBlackGirl, her multi-platform digital community.
In this conversation, we’re talking about exploiting our privileges for the greater good, sisterhood as a verb, and giving ourselves permission to succeed.
Much love to Chicago Recording Company, where I get the help needed to make these episodes come to life – even recording from home.
