CSP Presents The Black Swan Collective: Episode #78

This week we have tracks from Kadhja Bonet, Ruby Amanfu, and Yung Baby Tate. Our throwback segment doubles as a small tribute to someone we just lost as well as a theme that ties the segment. Stay inside and stay warm if winter still refuses to leave you, too.

It’s been three years since I started the show. Since I commemorate on Imani Coppola’s birthday, I decided to give you all a little something extra. This year, I’m bringing you a few of the rock acts I’ve had the pleasure of featuring on the show. And there’s a range of rock subgenres, so a little something for everyone. Happy anniversary to me!

Inda’s Corner: Black Women Introverts (Don’t) Get Lonely

While Black women are expected to nurture and take care of others, we aren’t allowed to be lonely for ourselves. We aren’t supposed to have our own needs. And we’re supposed to like it even without the expectation of anyone else providing emotional support for our benefit. Loneliness isn’t something that Black women are supposed to experience in our day-to-day lives while we are busy being superwomen for everyone not falling under the category of Black times woman. We’re most certainly not supposed to be introverts. So what happens when you find yourself a Black woman possibly in middle age coming to terms with loneliness in your life and reconciling it being an introvert lacking the skills to secure your social circle for your later years?
