The sista talk of all sista talks! Trey Anthony and Jem together, one night. Uncensored … two queens sit down and spill the tea! What’s it like to be a Black girl in love (with herself)? How do we get there? How do we remind ourselves? What does friendship look like for Black women? Can white women be our friends? And how do we get over our own complicated family trauma? Don’t miss this! They are going to be talking di tings! And telling the truth.
