Representation In Storytelling: With Nicole Blades
4 days ago
Nicole Blades is many things - journalist, author, podcaster, and mom. She's a bundle of talent and insight partnered with the gentle spirit we've come to expect from Canadians. Luckily for the U.S., she lives here now, and is coming out with her 3rd (!!!) novel this fall. I wanted to get her take on so many things, so we covered a lot in our talk. Black Panther, Wonder Woman, Game of Thrones, Hawaii 5-0, and Rachel Dolezal. Oh my!
Also, please please please forgive me, Ijeoma Oluo, for not knowing the pronunciation of your name off the top of my head. Here's the article she wrote that we reference: http://www.thestranger.com/features/2017/04/19/25082450/the-heart-of-whiteness-ijeoma-oluo-interviews-rachel-dolezal-the-white-woman-who-identifies-as-black
