Being Black w/ Camille Smith Episode 1: The Introduction
2021 Jan 109m 53s
In today's podcast, I explain why I am making it, what I will be talking about moving forward, and the goal I am trying to accomplish! I started an IGTV series, Being Black w/ Camille Smith, on my Instagram (@iamcamillesmith) back in July 2020 that I will be dedicating these podcasts to. It is my hope that these episodes can provide insight into some of the black experience, and ultimately through storytelling encourage empathy!I will be posting podcasts every Friday at 5pm EST. I also have a YouTube Channel (iamcamillesmith) that will have the same audio content with a video!Follow me on instagram (@iamcamillesmith) to keep up with guests!Disclaimer: All the stories told during these episodes are personal stories that should not be used to represent the entirety of the black community. It is my hope that these episodes will give insight into how being black has shaped our experiences, and as I bring on more guests, more perspectives will be represented. I want to give black people a safe space to share our common experiences, and I hope non-black people can benefit from listening to conversations they otherwise may not hear. You may hear people that you know in these videos. Because they were willing to speak about certain topics on the show, does not give you free reign to speak to them about it at any time. Please be respectful. This show aims to elicit empathy and compassion for other people, specifically black people.
