11 May Beating Back The Blues
About this Episode
The Blues have been memorialized in books, films, and music. But suffering the blues, or depression, has been a taboo topic among Black women for generations. Even as the stigma is lifted in some corners, millions refuse to acknowledge the illness, suffer in silence, or are unable to find sustainable treatment. In this episode, we explore “the blues” through the voices of three accomplished women who have battled depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder.
