Pride and Prejudice
It’s Pride month across the US. On this show, we are joined by Dr. Racquel (Rocky) Woodard, Kenyatta Andrews and Representative Torrey Harris, the first openly gay State Representative in Tennessee. The trio talk about moving through this world without shame, operating in corporate or government spaces and some of the noxious pieces of legislation that are currently afoot in so many states. And while prejudice may be a stretch – or is it acceptable prejudice? – the crew pivots to the controversial new hire at Morehouse. Should a white woman be the public face of this prestigious Black men’s university (as Chief Brand Officer and Vice President of Strategic, Marketing and Admissions)? Are we just prejudiced? (Spoiler: Consensus is NO) Does she have the cultural sensitivity for this job? Is this a springboard for her to the next thing? Morehouse, we got questions! Morehouse alum and host of the Da House ’94 podcast, Karl B, joins us for the second to discuss.
