Has every MAN assaulted someone? | Afrolit's Take
Hey Afrolit Fam, we decided to ask the controversial question that's probably been on everyone's mind at some point.  It's even MORE pressing to now have conversations with black men to get their take and we decided to take things up a notch and have the first AFROLIT DEBATE to argue the statement: All men above the age of 18 have assaulted and/or have witnessed or been told about an assault but remained silent within the situation.  We discussed: - Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network's (RAINN) definition of sexual assault - Power dynamics between men and women - Why men need more emotional intelligence - Believing women FIRST, before stories come - Can African's truly separate sex from culture and religion? - How we HAVE to have this conversation outside and it can't stop here!

EXPLICIT and Intimate ft. Penda N'diaye
Hey Afrolit Fam, this week we started a new series topic on the MISCONCEPTIONS AND TABOOS WITHIN AFRICAN CULTURE. When you think about Taboos within our culture, what the first thing that comes to mind?  Yup, we went there! We talked about Sex, Intimacy and everything in between with our FIRST GUEST of Season 3 @Pendajai ! Penda is a Senegalese-American NYU Tisch School of the Arts graduate, and former professional dancer currently expressing herself through words and storytelling. After her mom gave her her first vibrator for Christmas, she created the brand Pro Hoe®️ to eradicate stigmas surrounding sexual freedom and identity in Black communities. She is hyper-focused on using sex and taboo as a means of political change and resistance! We discussed: - How she got her start from dancer to writer, a fledged artist@ - Being hyper sexualized as dark-skinned women and colorism getting its roots from slavery - If sexual education is sexist and gendered, especially for black girls - When to give our children "the talk" - When we discovered intimacy for ourselves - How to create comfortable spaces  We would love to hear YOUR VOICE!
