S8E5: Understanding the Power of Black Economics with Britni Wilcher
What is microeconomics and what is its role in our daily lives? It is not always directly about money. If you think about the access you have and cost of your healthcare, food, employment, and housing, then you are familiar with microeconomics.

This conversation is a start in connecting the dots and learning the language of microeconomics. Join Terri and Dr. Dom as they lean into curiosity to learn about this topic from microeconomist, Britni Wilcher. Quote of the Day: " A race that is solely dependent upon another for economic existence sooner or later dies. As we have in the past been living upon the mercies shown by others, and by the chances obtainable, and have suffered there from, so we will in the future suffer if an effort is not made now to adjust our own affairs." -Marcus Garvey Tips for Changing Our Economic Outlook: Advocacy in healthcare Retooling ourselves for jobs in the future Hold policy makers accountable for what we need Twitter: @britniwilcher TalkBack Tuesday with Dr. Dom Wisdom Wednesdays with Terri H.E.R Space Sanctuary Resources: Melanin and Mental Health Therapy for Black Girls  Psychology Today Therapy for QPOC Where to find us: Twitter: @HERspacepodcast Instagram: @herspacepodcast Facebook: @herspacepodcast Website: herspacepodcast.com Email: herspacepodcast@gmail.com H.E.R Space Sanctuary: https://www.facebook.com/groups/herspacesanctuary/

S8E2: All My Skinfolk Ain’t Kinfolk
Can Black people be racist? NO! However, Black people can be agents of white supremacy and anti-Black. Due to how we have been socialized chances are there are times when we may experience internalized racism. Throughout our socialization there have been systems in place to move us closer to whiteness and as a result, shunning people who do not align with white supremacist heterosexist classist patriarchal ideologies. While some of us have found ways to break free from some of these ideologies, others have doubled down in fully aligning with whiteness. Today, Dr. Dom and Terri discuss those who may look like us but are not for us. Quote of the Day: "Souls that inhabit white bodies can be allies and accomplices in the fight against oppression, in the same way that black folks can be agents and accomplices in promoting, promulgating and protecting white supremacy. As my grandmother once said, conjuring Zora Neale Hurston, “All your skin folk ain’t your kinfolk.” Meaning that you can inhabit a black body and be an agent of white supremacy." - Professor Lawrence Ware Questions that need answers: What do we do about skinfolk that ain’t our kinfolk? How do the real Black people unite? What does it mean to be Black? How do we hold Black celebrities and officials accountable?
