I’m Black, I’m Beautiful, and I’m Proud of It!


I’m Black, I’m Beautiful, and I’m Proud of It!

by Anita Charlot

Listen to I’m Black, I’m Beautiful, and I’m Proud of It!:

I got the idea for this title from a gif I received on Martin Luther King Jr Day from a friend. There was no sound, but the words followed the movement of his mouth. I’m Black and Beautiful, Yes! I’m Black, and I’m Proud of It!

She has no idea how that made my entire week, month, AND year. Starting my morning with this gif will carry me throughout the week as I continue to do this work, no matter how challenging or energetically draining it can be.

Reading the captions brought to mind a few conversations I have had over the past couple of months with friends and colleagues who experience the world through White bodies. Even though these conversations were similar, the awareness of the individuals was different.

Join me inside the episode to see if you can identify yourself on either side, mine or theirs, and what you can do about it if you find yourself in conversations like these in the future.

What You Learn:

  • The importance of standing in your Blackness and having the tough conversations
  • Some topics and responses to the difficult conversations and how to navigate those
  • Interesting results from a study done in 2021 by LeanIn.Org and McKinsey & Company
  • Where to find me speaking in the upcoming months!
