S5E10: Juneteenth, Awkward Opportunities and Black Joy
Hello everyone, and welcome to a new episode of Naked Conversations! Today’s episode will be a review of many important matters happening at the moment. As most of our episodes begin, we will be speaking about what we’re currently into: Ramy on Hulu Dave Chapelle The prophets, a novel by Robert Jones Jr. We will also be discussing awkward moments, for instance, how Sage found herself in a teenage theater play and found it offensive for herself and her son, who watched it with her. Finally, we talk about the importance of time, place, and audience and how we sometimes don’t enjoy what everyone else finds hilarious. One of the most significant subjects discussed during this episode will be Juneteenth: “Juneteenth commemorates African American freedom and emphasizes education and achievement. It is a day, a week, and in some areas, a month marked with celebrations, guest speakers, picnics, and family gatherings. It is a time for reflection and rejoicing.” We will discuss the importance of this date, its history, and why it is a time to honor and date June 19th.
