On episode 37, we welcome Yolanda Danae’ of The Sassy Rant blog to discuss mental health in the black community, the necessity of reconceptualizing the idea of masculinity, how writing helped her become more vulnerable and self-possessed, and the influence that Tupac Shakur had on her ways of seeing and dealing with the world.

Similar to the conversations held at your weekend powwows, she uses her encounters to share lessons on dating + mental health, the importance of ownership, and encourages readers to shoot their shot on goals + aspirations. Through hosting her annual Cocktail Conversations events, Yolanda takes on the task of addressing societal misconceptions, as they pertain to men and women of color. In her own words, “We are not what they say we are, but what we know ourselves to be.”
