Black Beauty Experiences Matter
While the past few weeks have been exhausting for many of us in the black community, inequality has always been a part of the narrative. And yet still, we create, innovate and continue to push boundaries. This is our magic, and on Naked Beauty, it is something that I have tried to highlight through a number of black women. With that, I decided to use this episode to revisit their experiences, and their collective articulation of both the beauty and the struggle of simply being themselves. So please, sit back, listen and reflect. This is a message that needs to be heard.
