Season 4 of RHH is going to be an international journey, and we we start it off in the USA with our amazing sister, Elizabeth Leiba! She is a multimedia journalist of Jamaican descent living and working in Florida, where she has hosted numerous podcasts including “Black Power Moves” on the Ebony Podcast Network. Leiba is also a professor who has spent more than a decade working in higher education, teaching advocacy at the undergraduate and graduate levels. She is the Director of Instructional Design and Innovation at City College in Hollywood, Florida, and the founder and course developer for The Black History and Culture Academy, an informative, engaging and immersive online Black history program. And Leiba is the author of a magnificent book about “surthrival” entitled “I'm Not Yelling: A Black Woman's Guide to Navigating the Workplace”. And as if all that were not enough, in 2020, she was recognized by the networking website LinkedIn as a “Top Voice in Education”.
In this episode Elizabeth talks with me about her experience “Shopping While Black”, her unnerving experience with the police, what she learned about the legal system, and of course she shares with us her stories of overcoming and resilience.
