Episode 9: Lucy

Behind the Scenes

Today’s guest is Lucy Sandy. Lucy was born and raised in Houston, Texas by two immigrant parents from Sierra Leone: Mommy and Daddy, as they are affectionately called. In this episode, as Lucy approached the 10-year anniversary of her mom’s death, we talked about how it’s time to acknowledge that your parents weren’t perfect, the challenges of being raised in the shadow of two cultures, and the pressure of being a good Black daughter and a good Black woman. Oh, and I get honest around my shame in calling my mom a bitch.
