Health Justice on The UnMute Podcast

Myisha Cherry, a dope-ass philosopher at UC Riverside, had me as a guest on her podcast, The UnMute Podcast. We discussed health justice, specifically, what justice demands given black women’s unfair burden of ill health and inadequate health care.

Her final question, why I identify so strongly as a Southern Black woman, caught me by surprise. But my answer was that it is important to me to embrace who I am and where my roots are. It’s important to me for the purpose of being true to myself and my roots, and it is important to me because I want other country little black girls to see themselves reflected in the world.

When we finished recording, Myisha remarked, “You know we just had a real ‘black girl’ conversation, right?” Indeed we did. Here is the link.
