Happy Black History Month! We’re Black, proud and loud about it. In this conversation, we discuss Black identity and the variety of forms in which it exists. Who gets to call themselves Black isn’t always the same as who gets called Black. We talk about the complex dynamics projected on Black bodies with every added drop of melanin - from biracial identity to the Blackness ascribed to African immigrants when they move to other parts of the world. The privileges decrease as the shade darkens, but it's still a special kind of privilege to be Black.

P.S. Can you believe we’ve already made it to conversation 10?! Thank you so much for rocking with us!
