52. Celebrating Black Women for Who They Are with Shanita Hubbard

In this episode, we talk with Shanita Hubbard, the author of the new book Ride or Die: A Feminist Manifesto for the Well-Being of Black Women. We had an awesome time hearing from Shanita about her journey writing Ride or Die, why we must stop imposing and glorifying a Ride or Die mentality on Black women, how she’s growing as a parent, her favorite hip-hop artists and more. This is an incredible book and an incredible episode! You’ll love it as much as we did.
