Episode 13: “Love is Still Dope” Featuring 5 Young Black Couples on Anger, Patience, Humor, Marriage, & More

December 4, 2017

Five amazing couples for one night of laughter and one mic to share our thoughts on some key concerns for young people in young relationships... This episode was really the bi-product of just an amazing "Friyay" game-night with our friends and we are lucky to have happy couples that are willing to share their energy! I thank them so much for their honesty. I'm sad several of our peeps couldn't make it that night BUT that just means we get to do this again!!
