New Episode on Deck!!
Just in case you may have missed last week’s episode of Conversations with Beloved and Kindred, I got you covered!!
In this episode, Dr. Robinson and I break down episodes 7 and 8 of Lovecraft Country. Much like the previous episodes, these episodes were very much imaginative, personal and focused on a particular moment. However, what really sets these episodes a part from the earlier ones were their centering, specifically, on the Black woman and Black girl experiences. As two Black women who have experienced various perspectives of Black girlhood (southern and midwestern) to currently navigating Black womanhood both episodes are very relatable.
Being able to not only acknowledge and focus on the many layers of their experiences (trauma, resistance, joy, naming, anger, etc.) is essential because it allows for their stories to be seen as real made visible to a large audience.

On next time, we will discuss the 2018 supernatural/sci-fi/superhero/drama film Fast Colors from director Julia Hart and starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Lorraine Toussaint, and Saniyya Sidney. Here in this film we get to see #BlackGirlMagic, Black Female Star Power and the Black Female Imaginary on full display!!
