I'm so honored to host Professor Martha S Jones, author and researcher at Johns Hopkins, to talk about the history of the 19th Amendment, and how the stories we tell ourselves about our families and our histories shape the way we move through the world. It's an important conversation to have - especially in this moment when we're remembering the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment to the US Constitution. If you're anything like me, you grew up believing that this amendment gave women the right to vote, but the truth is much more complicated. I hope you'll join Professor Jones and I as we dive into the legacy of Black suffragettes and the power each of us wield as guardians of our own stories.

Look: we've all either been through it, are currently going through it, or will go through it. That's just how life is: once you think you've got it all figured out, it hits you with something you never saw coming. Grief? Check. Divorce? Check. Global pandemic? Uh, CHECK! That's why I wrote a new book all about conquering hard things and coming out the other side a better, stronger you. It's called Didn't See That Coming, and it's available for pre-order here: https://bit.ly/dstcrise
