As Black Americans, we’ve had to fight to get grocery stores into our neighborhoods, while fast-food chains were encouraged to thrive thereby federal policy. It feels like the opposite of a fully liberated life...one where access to nourishing food would be easier than the smoothest drive-thru. How can we build a future where we're closer to the source of our food? We digest that history and envision a future of liberation and nourishment with @DrMChatelain and @feedoursoul founder Adrienne Wilson.

What do body autonomy and reproductive health look like in a post Roe vs. Wade world? The stress of racism and barriers to care–including abortion care–are part of a downward spiral in reproductive justice. Too often, those stressors play out in our wombs as fibroids and cancers. We talk about seeking justice and liberation with our guests. GUESTS: Anoa Changa, journalist and writer of “What’s Next for Roe v. Wade?” Dr. Ashley Davis, Gynecologic Specialist at the Fibroid and Pelvic Wellness Center of Georgia Omisade Burney-Scott, healer and host of Black Girl’s Guide to Surviving Menopause LINKS: deartbt.com Twitter: deartruthbetold Instagram: deartbt TikTok: tonyatbt Email: tonya@deartbt.com Learn more about your ad choices.

What does sexual freedom really look like? This week we interrogate the messages we’ve internalized about sex and we ask ourselves: Can we decolonize our sex lives to aid in the larger quest towards liberation for us all? To help us unpack some of the layers we called on Ev’Yan Whitney – a sexuality doula, author, and sensualist – who helps people better understand their core desires, needs, and how to put into action what they feel. The hosts of the Inner Hoe Uprising podcast also help us explore this topic by providing a few burning questions they’ve been sitting with. Author, essayist, and digital activist Sherronda J. Brown rounds out our convo by bringing deep clarity to the identity of asexuality and pushes back on the idea that the act of sex is what makes us human. 2022 WEBBY WINNER: BEST ADVICE PODCAST  Twitter: deartruthbetold Instagram: deartbt Email: tonya@deartbt.com Learn more about your ad choices.

How do we raise Black children who feel free? One way, according to conscious parenting coach Yolanda Williams, is for caregivers to first deal with their own childhood trauma. Williams sat down with Tonya to offer some actionable tips on how to raise “free-thinking Black children” - and stop the tradition of spanking as a form of discipline. We gained so much insight from Yolanda in this episode and you will too.

Perseverance

Perseverance

2022-03-0330:09

In our society, Black parents may breathe a bit easier at night knowing their children are safe and accounted for. But when a tragedy takes that breath away, how do you persevere? What does it take to keep going after a painful loss?  Perseverance is defined as the continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition. This week, Tonya travels to Seattle to speak with Ayanna Brown, a mother who has done just that. In 2010, Ayanna and her family endured the heart-wrenching loss of her son, Alajawan Brown, who was murdered by gun violence in a case of mistaken identity.  In this intimate and thought-provoking conversation, Ayanna takes us through how she converts hate into love, reveals that anger once fueled her, and shares a vulnerable truth –– that she is just now learning who she is. The ways in which Ayanna propels herself forward each day can inspire us all to persevere.   We wrap up this powerful episode with the author of “Grief is Love: Living With Loss,” Marisa Renee Lee. Marisa shares insights on why we need to give ourselves permission to grieve more. 2022 WEBBY WINNER: BEST ADVICE PODCAST  Twitter: deartruthbetold Instagram: deartbt Email: tonya@deartbt.com Learn more about your ad choices.

Obligation

Obligation

2022-02-2435:481

Black men have it hard in America.  And by and large, Black women have felt an obligation to show up, love, and support them. Is it too much to ask that they show up for us? That’s the topic we’re taking on this week with writer and cultural critic Jamilah Lemieux. She recently wrote a piece for Vanity Fair where she coined the term “the Black Ass Lie,” pointing out the harm that comes from the ongoing narrative that straight Black men have it the worst in our society. She believes this lie is to the detriment of Black women, queer and trans people. In this raw and unfiltered conversation, Jamilah unpacks the layers of obligation Black women have to Black men with writer and professor Kiese Laymon. We explore the use of the b-word used to rhetorically destroy Black women — and what holding Black cishet men accountable actually looks like. 2022 WEBBY WINNER: BEST ADVICE PODCAST  Twitter: deartruthbetold Instagram: deartbt Email: tonya@deartbt.com Learn more about your ad choices.

Unwavering Love

Unwavering Love

2022-02-1738:56

For many of us, the church is a place of refuge. It’s where we first experience community and an understanding of love. But real talk: what do you do as a non binary person if the place that made you, doesn’t exactly accept who you are? That’s the dilemma from our very own editor James T. Green, who explores their identity and faith with renowned writer and poet, Nikki Giovanni. In this conversation, Nikki shares some of her most intimate truths with James, including her own challenges with the institution of the Black church. 2022 WEBBY WINNER: BEST ADVICE PODCAST  Twitter: deartruthbetold Instagram: deartbt Email: tonya@deartbt.com Learn more about your ad choices.
