This episode is all about friendship in all of its complexity and differences. For many of us, friends are like family. Joined by some of her girlfriends, who are all Black womxn, host Cartier begins the conversation reminiscing about the show Girlfriends, which aired on UPN/CW from 2000-8 and was recently released on Netflix. The group talks about difficulties of life during COVID-19, including keeping up with friendships. Throughout the episode, the friends reveal what their friendships look like and what is important to them.
Being a Black womxn is hard, and being friends with fellow Black womxn who can relate to each other in their experiences is important, especially right now. Because nobody rides for Black womxn like Black womxn.
Special thanks to the friends featured in the episode—Cassandra, Angelica, and Ashley—and those not featured here.
