Ep 151: #TBT Black women lead...but everyone isn't on board with Charisse Jones

June 24, 2021

While I put some final touches on my daughter's debut children's book, No Thanks for Girls: 7 Ways to Say I'm Beautiful, Strong and Enough, we're embracing a #ThrowbackThursday on The Culture Soup Podcast®.

This one has layers of significance to the #NoThanks series:

1) I chat with fellow National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) member and friend Charisse Jones of USA TODAY who covers retail and workplace issues about her coverage of the historic election of Vice President Kamala Harris and the implication for women leaders, especially those of color and Black women in particular.

2) If you picked up No Thanks, The Remix, you know that the story of Kamala's election to VP tees up one of the bonus chapters that highlights ways to handle micro-aggressive bullies. Pick it up on Amazon if you haven't already:

3) You may also know by now that No Thanks has been selected for NABJ's Outstanding Book Award which is a part of their Author's Showcase that happens at their annual convention and career fair. Charisse will be the journalist who interviews me before convention goers during the showcase, and I'm absolutely thrilled about it.

So it seemed befitting to revisit this episode, which kicked off 2021 for the podcast.

Ask Alexa, Siri or Spotify to play the latest episode of The Culture Soup Podcast®, and you'll be streaming with the best. It will air with a special pre-show monologue--unscripted as always--from yours truly.
