Segments

1. Colored Girl Hustle: Audre Lorde told us that “caring for [yourself] is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” But with so many attacks on our self-esteem, our families, and our communities, what does “self-preservation” look like for black women?

2. Can the “revolution” be fought online?: From #BringBackOurGirls to #WeCantBringBackOurDead. Who created them? What are the facts? And does anyone ever win the oppression olympics?

3. “Tell em why you mad” Roundup
