Episode 45: Abuse in the Black Community
This topic came up based on a post I saw on Facebook and I saw the need to expand on it. There's a lot of abuse in the black community, and it goes unreported and unresolved. I speak on my own past abuse and have my best friend Kitt on to speak on hers as well, and how that impacted us even today. This is a sensitive topic speaking on physical and sexual abuse. Some names may have been omitted and others may be stated blatantly because abusers don't deserve anonymity.  Feel free to submit questions on my website  or on my social media website: Twitter: Instagram: Facebook:
