Does videos like WAP add to the oversexualization of black women? Why does strong equal masculine? How can we build ourselves without relying on media to set the bar?
In this After Dark Conversation, host Valencia talks to her friend Shannon Ward about the state of black women in 2020. As black women, we push the narrative, we don't have to accept the narrative being given to us by those who don't know us.

Conversation Starters:
