Singlehood, Not Settling And Buying "Everything Black" w/ Sociologist Dr. Kris Marsh

50m | May 13, 2024

Hey, hey! This week we are diving deep into the world of singlehood, relationships, and empowerment with the esteemed sociologist, Dr. Kris Marsh. Dr. Kris and me, Bre Mitchell, are unpacking the gems from Dr. Marsh's groundbreaking book, "The Love Jones Cohort." Get ready to challenge the status quo as we debunk stereotypes surrounding Black women's love lives and celebrate the beauty of not settling.

In this candid conversation, we laugh, we learn, and we liberate ourselves from societal norms, all while sipping on some truth tea. Dr. Marsh shares her wisdom on the importance of nurturing non-romantic relationships and the freedom found in refusing to settle for less. Plus, she spills her top-notch self-care routines, from mental health Mondays to hitting the green for a round of golf.

But wait, there's more! We're not just talking the talk—we're walking the walk by shining a light on Black-owned businesses and rocking representation in everything we do. So grab your favorite beverage, settle into your comfy spot, and get ready for an episode packed with healing, liberation, and unapologetic self-love. It's time to rewrite the narrative and embrace the power of being true to yourself. Let's do this!

Be sure to show Dr. Marsh some love!!
