This week on Bag Ladiezzzzz we start off by talking a bit about our guest episode on #InnerHoeUprising who invited us to talk about our experiences as Afrolatinx womxn! For “Currento Eventos” we talk about the speculation going around about Tracee Ellis Ross pay gap, the imminent government shutdown (which is over now but still no Dream Act?! #DREAMACTNOW), the Women’s march, and Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman confronts her abuser at trial of the USA Olympic doctor who abused hundreds of young girls going after their dreams. In “What’s Your Baggage” we discuss intuition and developing a relationship with that inner voice. For “Put It in Your Bag” Estephanie talks about a jewelry maker she met at the NuTravels Nubian Shorties Night Out an all Black women art expo! Lina brings the CW’s new show Black Lightning which features a Queer Black superhero! NuTravels is an organization dedicated to exploring Afro-contributions throughout the world through travel and immersion in other cultures. I, the founder Tiffany Dames, with a group of other Black Entrepreneurs recently returned from a successful trip to Phuket, Thailand. I also created this platform to promote all things Black. Black businesses, Black entrepreneurship, Black appreciation, Black artistry, if it’s positive and pushes us forward I want to encourage it. Since returning, NuTravels is currently promoting our six month-long monthly series Nubian Shorties’ Night Out. This campaign was created to promote sisterhood among black women through monthly events. At these events the goal is for Black Women to gain meaningful personal and mutually beneficial business relationships with other Black Women. Nubian Shorties? I know you’re wondering how I came up with the term. Someone actually called me it the first time I heard it. I was going on a rant about how Black People especially Black Women aren't allowed to be multifaceted. I thought the phrase was perfect because although it sounds like an oxymoron, the word Nubian used usually in reference to a regal, Egyptian queen-equse Black Woman and the word Shorty, a slang word that usually refers to an "urban" Black Woman. But really it embodies the idea that Black Women are multidimensional and have layered personalities. So to me a Nubian Shorty is showcasing that we're magic but we're still real. She is someone that encompasses all walks of life and reflects every personality a Black Woman can and has the right to be able to possess, without judgment.
