I’m a Black woman who loves Wisconsin. That said, with so few Black folks in the state, sometimes I need a little extra dose of Black oxygen. A place where I can breathe, connect, restore by hearing and listening deeply to Black folks in this shared journey of life. This podcast will feature and highlight the Black voices in Wisconsin and a little beyond. I hope that these conversations will lift your spirits and give you a few moments to breathe. Get your candles lit and your incense burning. It’s time for Black Oxygen.
