In Human Terms, Ep.7: “Black in America”

It’s February and that means that the United States of America is officially celebrating black history month.

Yet, for a country that has an entire month dedicated to celebrating its black people, America’s relationship with its melanin enriched citizens remains complicated.

So, what’s it like to be a black person in a country that on the one hand celebrates you and on the other threatens you?

Over the next two episodes of in Human terms, Joy Gilmer, an old family friend, black woman, and educator will share her thoughts with my mom and I as we explore what it’s like to be a black woman in America today.
