    MFTU 3 - "Ache"

    MFTU 3 - "Ache"

    [Sorry about the technical difficulties. The echo ends around the 12 minute mark. ]

    Maria and Didi cover ep 2x03 of Underground, a epic entry called "Ache". This episode gives us a reason to discuss Black women's relationship with strength, the myth of the Strong Black Woman and what happens when you run out of strength and need care. We also get to talk about Black women's bodily autonomy and how the vestiges of slavery affect us today on that issue. If you haven't figured out by now, this episode was A LOT. Misha Green put her foot in this!

    To continue the discussion, please contact us at blackgirlsquee@gmail.com or on Twitter @Roxie and @dustdaughter. Until next time, please take care of yourselves, black women! We love you even when you aren't strong!

    Intro/Outro is "Oya" by Ibeyi.
