On this episode, I have an incredible conversation with Jenny Booth Potter, a creative producer, storyteller, and co-host of The Next Question, a web series about expanding our imagination for racial justice. She has co-led racial justice trainings across the country for churches and organizations, and is the Chief Content Officer of HerSelf Media, a company that aims to create stories that empower and bring joy to Black women. I recently read her new book, Doing Nothing Is No Longer an Option, and was excited when she agreed to join us on the Sanctuary Woman. We talk a lot about purity culture on this podcast, and I think there is a really interesting thread that comes up in this conversation that I’m glad we pulled on. We talk about intersectionality, parenting, idolizing innocence and protecting it at all costs, and reflecting on our own inner Karen.
Full show notes coming soon.
