Have you ever gone back to your required reading from high school? Sally decided to do just that by reading a book she loved, a book she hated, and a book she thought was fine. Did she have taste then? Has she grown as a reader… or devolved?
Then in the second segment, Niba sits down with Dr. Poetry, the Reproductive Health Specialist, to talk about black healthcare inequities in america. They also speak about her work in Ghana and how she maintains balance in this space.
Books mentioned by Sally:
FBC Podcast Segment: Why I Reread Books
The Awakening by Kate Chopin
The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
