Ep. 2: Black Faces, White Spaces with Margaret Jacobsen

** We made a mistake. While recording this episode, we misdescribed Margaret as she/her instead of they/them. We're truly sorry for this error.**  

We welcome our first guest to the pod: Margaret Jacobsen, a mom, writer, activist, and social justice warrior based in Portland, Oregon! Margaret is here to talk about Black Feminism/Womanism and Intersectionality, and about how the massive Women’s March in January and the rise in activism in America over the last five years have made the thorny subject of race and feminism fresh again. (Oh. Yay.) 

About Margaret: "I currently live in Portland, Oregon, with my two children. I'm a D&D loving Hufflepuff whose interests include praising Beyoncé’s name wherever I go, watching Korean dramas and anime, spending a lot of time wishing I could write poetry, and creating projects that benefit other people more than they benefit me. I believe in social justice. Believe in always speaking up. Believe in carving out space for those of us who aren't given space. And above all, I believe in magic."
