    BGS 43 - It's Our Anniversary!

    Join Inda and Didi for a short but sweet episode celebrating two years of Black Girl Squee!

    Black Girl Squee's 2yr Anniversary

    We've been Hiddlestoners, we've cancelled old dude while still wondering about that print. We've squeed over many Black girls and women, trans and cis, queer, straight and otherwise. We've told a few of them to Catch the Fade. We've been rolling our eyes at white feminism and calling it out wherever we see it.

    We have celebrated great black women athletes like Tamika Catchings and Serena Williams. We've celebrated great musicians like NAO, Jamila Woods, Syd, Solange, Lalah Hathaway, Jazmine Sullivan, and many more.

    When Viola Davis won an Emmy for best actress in a drama, we were there to squee with y'all and break down the enormity of the achievement. We played Her speech and broke down the Brilliance and Blackness of it and we all bowed down to Queen Viola.

    We've talked about a lot of music. We stanned for Missy Elliott and the Women of Luke Cage. And learned lots of Womanist Vocab. Hopefully everyone listening has paid heed to our Black Girl Commandments.

    We've been through a lot the past two years. Lost jobs, lost cars, lost parents. But we kept coming back to the podcast and did our best to give you quality content for the free. Please contribute to our Patreons (Here's Inda's Patreon. Here's Didi's Patreon.) if you appreciate our work and wanna help us continue.
