In this first episode of the “What does being Black mean in 2022?” series Adrian explores the idea of cultural gatekeeping, specifically within the Black community. Who is given permission to be called Black? Who is given the authority to decide? Race is not always black and white, but when it is, which side is to be honored? Does one have to choose or is there a comfortable middle ground? Listen as Adrian and life-long friend Riana sit down for the first time and have a discussion of their own connection to Blackness; how they overlap; and how they, on the surface, seem so far apart.
