This episode is all about the current climate and enlightenment our country is going thru in terms of racial injustice. As I sat back and literally watched my country go thru so much turmoil in a matter of two weeks, I needed a means to talk thru my emotions as a black person. I’m thankful that I was able to call on my peers of The Orange Collab – who are all black female entrepreneurs and influencers.
In this episode you will find we speak very candidly about our state of minds as black women specifically:
- How social media has effected this moment
- Our honest feelings towards the #BlackOutTuesday movement and why a black square isn’t quite enough
- Suggestions of how brands and non-black influencers should navigate this topic and moment
- What we feel is needed to move forward for our nation and the entire world as a whole to combat racial injustice.
For my fellow black listeners, I hope this shows you are not alone in this space at this time. And for my non-black listeners, welcome! Just to advise, we do not hold back in this discussion and you are really getting an intimate view into our mindsets and feelings. Please listen with an open mind, open heart, and feel free to ask any questions or continue the discussion on social media on A Life by You’s Instagram or Facebook page.
