Writerly Conversations | Ep. 8 | Dear Publishing, Black People are NOT a Monolith | Black Creator



Hey guys another better late than never video! Hopefully this won’t ever happen again (and at least not next month since it will be a live show LOL). And nope, this ain’t a short one so grab some popcorn and hydrate! And yes, I know the title slide don’t match the thumbnail. Ooops y’all still gonna get the topic LOL

In this video, we’re getting into a topic that is super sensitive (totally on brand) but needs to be discussed. It was influenced by several twitter threads which can be found below. Please completely understand that we value all perspectives so feel free to give us your thoughts, but please be respectful. And don’t forget to answer the questions and make it interactive!
