In this final episode of the season, we talk about emboldening our young Black youth to love their bodies, to be in their bodies. Guest Thokozani Ndaba guides us through her work of maneuvering through the objectification and over-sexualization of Black bodies, and together we learn how she turns that mess into treasure. How can we own our sexuality while also realizing that we live in a dangerous world for Black bodies? Let us start by finding our own voices.
