black love magic

Tunde Wey


Speakers: Westley Bayas III, Dr. Rashida Govan.

Westley works in the non-profit sector, organizing around reproductive rights. He is active around local policy issues. He's a native New Orleanian.

Dr. Rashida is an education consultant, non-profit executive, working with young african american girls. Rashida and Wes are partners—they've been together a few years. She's originally from New Jersey but currently resides in New Orleans.

This recording is mostly about how Rashida and Wes see their relationship as a black couple, with its unique burdens as different from non-black couples. They also discuss the internal dynamics of their relationship given the nontraditional gender notions they operate within. It was recorded during a private meal at a music venue in the French Quarter in New Orleans.
