Walk A Day In My Culture

By Narissa Harris, LMFT
"Walk A Day In My Culture" is a podcast where I help people be more culturally aware through my cultural lens. I talk with listeners from my perspective as a Black woman first, and a clinician second. By doing this I provide people who are not African-American with a different way of looking at the issues my community faces. For those who are African-American, they are provided with validation regarding the things they are experiencing, giving them a sense that they are not alone. Regardless of the listeners race, my podcast is bound to be helpful and will keep your cultural antennas raised!

Episode 5: Oh Chelsea Please!
In this episode I decide to be super candid and raw. You all are experiencing my initial reactions to a Netflix documentary on White Privilege. I speak about why I have a problem with the film, and I encourage my listeners to take home some tips from the film that may help them remain culturally aware. The cultural tidbit simply encouragers listeners to watch the film and pay attention to their reactions. Take a listen to the episode, and feel free to leave a comment.

Episode 3: We Can't Have S@!&
