"I was a good black friend." Interview w/Joi.


Today on Pillar Talk with Rochelle, corporate education professional Joi Williams owns her story and is on her way to fully embrace her DNA. Growing up, she always had a little, but enough. However, compared to what her more affluent friends at school had, it led her to want to fit in with the dominant culture. Raised to be well-spoken and articulate, Joi became "the good Black friend." As a child, she found the acceptance she longed for, but today, Joi is using her voice to educate others that language matters and one should seek to understand different people. She also teaches her children that their blackness is beautiful.
