Leighann is a proud member of House Ravenclaw (with a dash of Slytherin). Subhah Agarwal has brought an honesty to her comedy that is refreshing, and at times a bit disturbing... but in a good way. Trust me. Subhah has written for "The Jim Jefferies Show"on Comedy Central, and "Comedy Knockout" on TruTv, amongst others. You can also catch her jokes live at stand up comedy clubs across the country. If you don't want to leave your couch, you can see her late night debut on NBC's "A Little Late With Lilly Singh." She will also be appearing on season three of HBO's "Westworld", as Ichtaca on TruTv's sketch comedy "Friends of the People", and as herself on MTV2, Comedy Central, and Gotham Comedy Live.

From headlining comedy clubs, to showing-out on television, Dominique is a seasoned face of funny in America. She’s created laughs on stages across the world, including NBC’s Last Comic Standing, HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, Comedy Central’s “The Chappelle Show,” O.W.N’S “Herlarious,” the Adult Swim television shows “Black Jesus” and “Tropical Cop Tales,” and in the film Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween. Her stand-up special “Stop Me When I’m Lying” (2017) is available on Amazon Prime. After switching careers from postal work to comedy, Dominique quickly gained notoriety for telling it like it is, raw and uncut.

Before long, Dominique became a fixture of New York’s comedy scene, performing alongside comics like Chris Rock and Dave Chapelle.

In addition to stand-up and television, Dominique has drawn laughs from radio audiences across America during a regular segment on the “Tom Joyner Morning Show.” From this platform, Dominique became known as the “people’s champ,” a comedian who speaks for the common man and woman of America.

Remember When We Caught The Spirit? (Feat. Pastor Shirley Caesar and Ashon Crawley)
Can You Hear It? I Know You Caught The Spirit This week, Josh and Tracy are taking you to church. First, they talk about their time in the pews, from the ways they've had to reconcile their faiths and identities to the music that has stuck with them. They hear about the deep, poetic roots of Gospel in Black identity from writer and professor Ashon Crawley. And they sit down with pastor and legend Shirley Caesar to talk about her reverence for the music, her unforgettable “greens, beans, potatoes, tomatoes” meme, and the importance of finding joy right now.

29. Black Men For Trump?: The Overdue Conversation on Patriarchy & Misogynoir in Black Politics
In this “barbershop edition” of Intersectionality Matters, which was recorded live on October 28th, Kimberlé is joined by a panel of activists, scholars, and writers to discuss, patriarchy, misogynoir, and why a small but meaningful minority of Black men, including prominent celebrities like 50 Cent and Ice Cube, are choosing to support President Trump this election. Led by AAPF Co-Founder Luke Charles Harris, this roundtable conversation explores what genuine self-love looks like for Black men, the relationship between racism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia in the Black community, and how we can imagine different, more empowering futures for ourselves and our communities.

Session 182: Consensual Non-Monogamy
The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves. Today we’re digging into the topic of consensual non-monogamy. While monogamous relationships may be the relationship types we hear about most often, they’re not the only relationships types that exist. To break it all down for us, I was joined by Ruby B. Johnson, LCSW, LCDC. Ruby and I discussed some of the most common misconceptions about consensual non-monogamy, how to determine whether a polyamorous relationship is a good fit for you, some considerations in a polyamorous relationship, how to unpack some of the stigma related to consensual non-monogamy, and of course she shares some of her favorite resources.
