Listening to Black Voices

A Conversation with Krys Marshall and Joél Leon

Listening to Black Voices

Episode Details

In this episode, we listen to and hear from Krys Marshall, an actress currently starring in the AppleTV+ show For All Mankind, and author, artist, and girl dad Joél Leon. They talk about their experiences with systemic racism, their mental health journeys, and the barriers Black communities face when seeking help. They also share their hopes for social change in the midst of injustice across the US and offer advice to those struggling.

“When we talk about removing shame, guilt, and fear from the process and removing ego from the process, what that then does is allows us to have more grace and mercy and empathy for ourselves and how we show up for social change, for social good.”
