In this episode, we listen to and hear from EbonyJanice Moore, a womanist scholar, author, activist, and the founder of Black Girl Mixtape—a platform that creates sacred space to celebrate the voices and wisdom of Black women. She talks about the importance of honoring her rage while cultivating joy and making space for rest, and the ways in which those with privilege can show up for people of color during this call for social change and justice. She also shares her personal journey with healing and her belief that “everybody needs therapy.”
“Everybody needs therapy. And when I say everybody needs therapy, I mean everybody. I mean, your childhood pastor needs therapy, your grandmama needs therapy, your uncle, as wise as he is, with all of his funny wisdom sayings, needs therapy. Your mama needs therapy, your daddy needs therapy, your best friend from high school needed therapy. Everybody. Everybody needs therapy.”
