Show Notes

Alex and Lenya have more to discuss about the Olympics!

 

Some people are saying they only turn on the Olympics to watch the Black athletes. What does this mean to them, and to the Black Community? Does it help? What if someone were to just watch the white athletes? 

 

There’s more discussion about the media and their portrayal of Black olympians. And why, even though the Black equestrian community is growing, are there no Black equestrians at the Olympics?

 

This, and much more. Subscribe and tell your friends.

Sisterhood

Lenya and Alex go deep into “what is sisterhood?”    Alexandra explains how she has no more time for insecure people. Lenya feels empowered and happy when she sees a woman out in her workout catsuit. Together they debate and discuss to get to what sisterhood really means.   There’s an acknowledgement that putting yourself out on social media in a manner that shows your true self, and not necessarily your online persona, can come with a lot of backlash, no matter the race. What does sisterhood tell us to do with this situation?   Listen in for this and more!   --   Please **rate and review** this podcast if you enjoyed it; reviews greatly help new listeners see this podcast is worth their time.

Interview with Nicole and Cassidy Part 1

Mother Nicole and Daughter Cassidy Meyers join us to discuss race and womanhood. We explore how campus interpersonal colorism has changed over time, and how race factored into Nicole’s decision to become a lawyer. Nicole Meyers is an attorney in Los Angeles, California, where she practices plaintiff- side employment law. She holds a J.D. from Southwestern Law School, a B.A. in Theatre from UCLA, and is licensed to practice law in California and New York. Before becoming an attorney, Nicole traveled the world working as an actress and model. When she’s not aggressively advocating for her clients, Nicole’s likely enjoying quality time with her husband, children, and their three frisky cats. Cassidy Meyers is a senior photography major, writing minor at Spelman College. She’s a Los Angeles native who has been living in Atlanta for the past four years attending college. Recently, she participated in a program called ‘Black Future Creators’ through Beats where she got to create content related to her photography journey, which was featured on their site. She has loved the arts since childhood, and plans on continuing to use photography as a form of self expression. ![](https://imgur.com/a/rFD19N5) -- Please **rate and review** this podcast if you enjoyed it; reviews greatly help new listeners see this podcast is worth their time.
