Today, we meet with Chioma Oruh, a political scientist and activist, Ph.D. candidate, mother of 2 and sacred sexual healer.  Here's what she'll be discussing with us: 

"The past 500 years of maafa, colonialism and now neo-colonialism has been a true test of African masculinity. Traditionally and indigenously, the vast majority of pre-colonial African societies were matriarchal, Yet these mother-centric cultures co-existed with egalitarian and cooperative patriarchies that did not result in the abuse or oppression of the women, yet upheld the power of masculinity. Having experienced such traumatic experiences of the past 500 years has given a severe blow to Black masculinity as it is evident that they were unable to defeat the blows of white supremacy and capitalism. There are many social ways this defeat plays out in our lives and relationships. This program will explore those ways."
