Lyvonne Proverbs is a black woman, a pastor, and a body- and sex-positive writer who is dedicated to tending to the mental, physical, sexual, and spiritual health of black women, for their own sake, and as an act of community justice in the US and in the world and invites white listeners to examine their own role in white supremecist, misogynistic power structures. 

In this episode, Lyvonne and I talk about how trauma crops up and impacts our everyday lives and relationships and how that plays into politics, specifically public response to (former) Democratic primary candidates Mike Bloomberg, Liz Warren, and Pete Buttigieg.
