Charlene Carruthers

Week 5, Sunday, November 3

As founder of BYP100 and the author of Unapologetic, Charlene Carruthers has been a transformative voice on the topic of social activism. Our Week 5 discussion gets the heart of non-violent resistance, where passionate activists put their bodies on the line for a better world.

Brené Brown

Week 6, Sunday, November 10

New York Times bestseller and clinical researcher, Brené Brown, has transformed the world with her research on shame and everyday bravery. She joins the hosts in a transforming conversation about what happens when the psychological importance of vulnerability meets the social reality of racism. This is not to be missed.

Jasmine Guillory

Week 7, Sunday, November 17

New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Date and The Proposal, Jasmine Guillory has made a name for herself by writing novels which center the experience of black women who are fun, intelligent, flirty and worthy of love and great sex. We talked with Jasmine about the power of black women telling their own stories and her experience in writing literature.

Rachel Cargle

Week 8, Sunday, November 24

Rachel has carved her own path as a teacher, writer, activist and transformative voice for anti-racism. As the founder of Loveland Hall she has honed her expertise on anti-racist activism. We loved learning from her about how black womanhood is at the center of activism, empowering all of us to do more in the work for justice.
