In this episode we focus on what can white women and male minorities do to work together in the fight for equality instead of against each other. Often time these two minorities are pinned against each other and increasing the marginalization for one group.
Robert is a project manager who is moving to DC at the start of the new year.In this podcast we highlight on the experiences of being the token black person with the lush curls. Listen to Robert’s product tips on how to keep the curls looking good.
