account-able: bougie aun-TEA time dicussing sacred facts

Hey Niblings, Join your aunties, having Bougie Aun-TEA time, where we discuss the episodes in the Sacred Fats series!

Sacred Fats was such a great series and we got a lot out of it. Hope y’all did too. Let us know if y’all have any feedback or questions for us!

Reparations, Transportation and Infrastructure with Kristen Jeffers

Transportation and Infrastructure justice is an important element of the movement for reparations, given this country’s history of bisecting and destroying communities of color through the construction of highways, light rail and other transportation systems.
