Ep. 26: Author Regina Robertson on How Timing Can Break Your Heart
We're chatting it up with Regina R. Robertson, editor, writer, and author of He Never Came Home: Interviews, Stories, and Essays from Daughters on Life Without Their Fathers. She's the West Coast editor of Essence magazine and her byline has been featured in O, the Oprah Magazine, on TheRoot.com and the Associated Press newswire. She has also been quoted in The Los Angeles Times and appeared as a featured guest on AM Joy, The Real, NPR, TV One and KTLA-TV. Recently, Regina has been crafting scripts for shows like Essence’s Black Women in Hollywood Awards, Street Style Block Party and the three-day Empowerment Experience at the Essence Music Festival. You can find her on Twitter @reginarobertson, IG at @reginarrobertson and her website. We're also All A Twitter over the gross Harry Weinstein sexual harassment and assault case (yuck). Here's the massive expose in The New Yorker (be careful with this one; it's very disturbing and explicit). And we sound the Air Horn Salute for actor Gabrielle Union for opening up about her painful experience with miscarriage. It is such a common struggle for women—so glad that people are speaking up and giving voice to such a personal experience.
