Welcome to Season 2 of The “Race, Health & Happiness” Podcast! This season is about “Game Changers”, people who are dismantling institutional racism in their own fields, teaching us how to do it, or how to support it, while we thrive.
In this episode, I speak with Olunike Adeliyi, the Canadian actress, activist and philanthropist that many of you will know from her roles in the TV shows “Workin’ Moms”, “American Gods” and “Coroner”. We really connected as sisters of African and Caribbean heritage during our wide-ranging discussion about self care, Olunike’s experiences navigating the acting world as a Black woman, and dealing with racism and colorism in everyday life.
Olunike has not only survived but she has surTHRIVED in her career and in her life, thanks to a strength, resilience and centeredness that really comes through in this conversation. I hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as I enjoyed connecting with my friend, Olunike.
