The legalization of cannabis is not just an economic and public health issue, it’s also a racial justice issue.

A historic election in Georgia. The insurrection at the U.S Capitol. President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ inauguration. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Hiba and Chevon return to kick off the second half of Season 2 by addressing everything that happened in the month of January and talking about the work moving forward under a new presidential administration.
We need to position the fight for racial justice within the highest levels of government. In a NY Daily News Op-Ed, Race Forward president Glenn Harris and APIAHF CEO Juliet Choi make the case for a White House Office of Racial Equity.
In this special mid-season finale, Chevon and Hiba bring you highlights from the “Culture In the Time of the Uprisings” plenary from Facing Race: A National Virtual Conference, featuring WNBPA Vice President Layshia Clarendon, IllumiNative Executive Director Crystal Echo Hawk, and United We Dream Co-founder Cristina Jiminez.
In the aftermath of a nail-biting 2020 Presidential Election, Hiba and Chevon host their first (virtual) live show joined by our Facing Race audience! (recorded via the Hopin platform)
Chevon and Hiba lift up the wins driven by Black women and BIPOC communities that were seen and felt across the nation and were instrumental to President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris’ win. From Georgia flipping blue because of massive voter registration efforts to Arizona organizers’ unrelenting work, our hosts discuss how it all collectively came to fruition.

For our season premiere, Chevon and Hiba link up with Blk Pod Collective’s Founder & Chief Creative Officer, Ona Oghogho, and Membership Director Sheunopa Mugobogobo to talk about the growing Black podcasting landscape and the importance of building community and showing solidarity in podcasting.
