In this segment of Let’s Talk About It, we had to share our thoughts and reflections on Candice Brathwaite being overlooked to present a documentary on the maternal treatment of Black Women in the NHS;
a topic that Candice has documented and campaigned for her entire career.
We question sisterhood at work, activism at work, pigmentocracy and meritocracy.
This is a complex issue with industry information that we are not privy to, but what we know is that Candice was only seen for the purpose of exploitation and if she hadn’t shared her truth we would not have seen the entire truth of this story.
With Candice we stand.
Thank you for your continued support the Black Women Working Podcast. We look forward to Season 4.
