Unlocking the Real Stories of Black History with Dr. Michele Goodwin

In today’s current climate, there are so many pressures. Pressures when it comes to our reproductive systems and the conversations the government is having about it. Pressure when it comes to the push to succeed. Pressures for black women reclaiming our space. With all of these pressures, we look to our ancestors and wonder how did they handle all of the atrocities they experienced and still have dignity and grace for their fellow man. My guest can speak on this perfectly. In this episode, I am so pleased to speak with Dr. Michele Goodwin.
