Afrobella Radio will be the weekly on-demand airwaves embodiment of all things Afrobella – natural women, engaging and enlightening discussion, and insight about hair, beauty, culture and the things that make our lives fuller and more meaningful.
I’m kicking it off THIS THURSDAY AT 11 AM EST, 10 AM CT with two amazing guests who have inspired me more than they may realize.
My first guest will be Aliya S. King ! I have been reading her byline for years in magazines including Vibe, Vibe Vixen, Giant, Uptown, Essence…the list goes on. Aliya was one of the people who inspired me to pursue a different kind of writing – fun, edgy pop culture print journalism. She’s coming out with a new book – Platinum: A Novel!!
So I can’t wait to hear ALL about it from the author herself!
My second guest is the amazing Angela Nissel. Her book, The Broke Diaries: The Completely True and Hilarious Misadventures of a Good Girl Gone Broke, was SUCH an inspiration to me as a student attending the University of Miami. As an aspiring author seeking her own voice. As a young woman coming into her own awareness and ambitions. Angela is also the author of Mixed: My Life in Black and White, she’s a former co-executive producer / writer for the Emmy award-winning television show, Scrubs, she’s written for O The Oprah Magazine, Glamour, Allure…Angela is awesomeness personified. SO excited to interview her for the first time.
We’re going to talk about writing, living your dream, expressing yourself, having fabulous natural hair…all kindsa stuff.
I hope you listen and I hope you like it! Please visit and leave a comment, let me know how you feel about the upcoming show, topics you’d like to hear me cover, whatever you’re thinking! And if you leave a comment, you’ll be put into a drawing to win something from Afrobella Radio!
