4: Black Girl Galaxy EP 4 | The Blacker The Berry
On this episode of Black Girl Galaxy, I will be exploring the topic of Misogynoir. A term coined by Queer black feminist Moya Bailey in 2010, with the root words misogyny and noir (French for Black) The term describes the specific hatred, dislike, distrust, and prejudice directed towards black women. I will be exploring Misogynoir with my guest Azaria a singer song writer and the host of Bad Gyal Chat podcast. I will be looking at this topic through the lenses of three main stereotypes the first being the Jezebel stereotype, the second being the Mammy stereotype and the third being the Sapphire stereotype. These stereotypes along with other white supremacist based ideologies have led to the oppression and decreased health outcomes for black women. Despite these stereotypes plaguing black women we have been able to reclaim our bodies, autonomy and value and will continue to. It is important to explore this intersectionality as we think of ways to uplift and empower black women. At the end of the episode I recognize 6 amazing black Canadian women who are inspirations for us all.

3: Black Girl Galaxy EP 3 | Black On Campus 2
On this episode of Black Girl Galaxy I will still be focusing on the black student experience at predominantly white universities and colleges, speaking to my sister Osaru, who is a senior at Queens university and founded the first Queen's Black Premedical Association with the goal of encouraging black students on their routes to becoming doctors. We talk about the micro and macro-aggressions we have both faced on campus, the infamous Queens race party, the Queens black Medical Student Ban and how the culture at these schools creates environments that are not for black women or marginalized groups.

2: Black Girl Galaxy EP 2 | Black on Campus
In the second episode of Black Girl Galaxy, I will be exploring the ways in which the Canadian education system has contributed to the racialization of non-white people and negative experiences for people of color on University and College campuses. My Guest Sophie, a nurse who graduated from uOttawa discusses how she used experiences like being called the "n-word" in class to start an African Student Alliance to promote diversity of all people on campus. Lastly, I will touch upon how the education system creates a funnel that admits fewer and fewer black students in all levels of education starting from elementary school. Instagram pages like @IveyAtTheMargins and @StolenbySmith contain more stories from marginalized people that help shed light on the severity of this issue.
