Tune in as Dr. Robinson and I close out our conversation on the HBO series “Lovecraft Country” with episode 9 (“Rewind 1921”) and episode 10 (“Full Circle”)!!
In this episode, we take a deep dive exploring the closing of the series!! We went deep with this episode, discussing the Tulsa massacre, grief and loss, legacy of trauma, closure, and wisdom out the mouths of babes…So sad that the series has come to an end, but grateful for its existence!!!
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.
