S3 E20: “No shame or fear” with Tova the Poet
Tova Ricardo, better known as Tova the Poet, is a poet whose poems speak from her perspective as a Black Jewish woman. In her poetry, she ruminates on how she perceives the world and how the world perceives her, which includes celebrating her culture and identity, but also having to confront the antisemitism, anti-Black racism, and sexism that comes with it.
In this episode, Tova performs a poetry reading, describes what growing up in her Louisiana Creole, Black, and Jewish home was like, and offers her thoughts on Black Hebrew Israelites.
