Society & Culture

Hey Beautiful,
looking back, as an African Woman living in foreign lands, I wish I had this podcast. A place where I can feel connected to home. A space where women have honest & intelligent conversations, where everyone understands my lingo or when and why I code switch. A space that is safe to talk about all things that were taboo growing up but I never quite learned and yet am supposed to be an expert on as an adult. A space where healing, unlearning and growth is normal. But hey that was me, maybe you don’t need that. So let’s keep Africana Woman the best kept secret.
