Conversations with Beloved & Kindred-Episode 3

My friends!! We got you covered for last night’s episode right here!! See below:

Our third conversation discusses Episodes 3 (“Holy Ghost”) and 4 (“A History of Violence”) of Lovecraft Country!! In this episode we tackle everything from the museum space, mental health and trauma, rituals & spirituality, calling on the ancestors, Chicago housing/redlining, visibility and invisibility of Black women, and preserving #BlackGirlJoy & #BlackBoyJoy. There was a lot to digest and unpack with this one, but so glad that we did!!
