Today’s episode is a very emotional one for me. Just a couple of nights ago, the world was jarred by news of Chadwick Boseman's untimely death. He was the seminal figure in Marvel's The Black Panther.

When I heard that Kamala Harris had been selected as the VP nominee for the Democratic Party, I was elated. It wasn’t because she was my pick but she was a win nonetheless: a win for me as a women and a win for me as a Woman of Color. While I understood that everybody didn’t share my joy, I did not expect the barrage of criticisms of her I read.
Words like “nasty”, “angry black woman”, and “ambitious” were the ones that cut me most deeply. Words, I felt, that Black Women have been burdened with for centuries.

I’ve had my share of suffering for love, suffering in love, and suffering through love and I gotta tell you, there is nothing redeeming about it. In this episode, I am forthcoming about finding love and getting married later in life:

- The thinking you in love and the realization that you’ve been in love with an ideal, a fantasy of love, that you’ve looked for someone to be willing in help you preserve it.
- That realization typifies the real journey to whether you will surrender the fantasy for real love or surrender real love for the fantasy.

Hold on to your wig and clutch your pearls. Coach Stephanie McKenzie is in the house! Our riveting conversation about sex and health is that long overdue conversation that we need to have with our sexual partners and committed relationships that very few people have.
