Episode 51: Taking up space with J.Mix

This is the ultimate kick-off conversation for Black History Month. In this 50-minute “no holds barred” discussion we chat about reclaiming space and time as Black people; what anti-racism looks like for Black Millennials, and the importance of rest.

J.MIx is a New Orleans-based artist, advocate and the host of The Self-Aware Millennial Podcast.
