74: Do Black Women Have Post Traumatic Slave Disorder? ft Dr Tasha Brown
Show Notes

"Black millennials are one of the first generations to push beyond [the] wealth gap to find financial success, '' writes Rianka R. Dorsainvil for a recent Op-Ed for CNBC. Black culture praises wealth, so I want to put another form of wealth on your radar.

Let's talk about Generational Emotional Health and healing from the impact of racial trauma so that we can support our children. Raising children who can identify feelings, regulate emotions, and thrive in their unique personalities is critical in taking our community to the next level.
