Session 268: Red Lip Theology with Candice Benbow

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

As part of our programming efforts for Minority Mental Health Awareness Month we’re closing out this July with a special episode featuring author and theologian Candice Benbow. Candice is a multi-genre theologian reimagining how faith can be a tool of liberation and transformation for Black women and girls. In her work Candice challenges Black women to think critically about how they see God, themselves, and the world around them. Our conversation explores processing church hurt, finding your identity within a church community, and Candice’s new book Red Lip Theology: For Church Girls Who've Considered Tithing to the Beauty Supply Store When Sunday Morning Isn't Enough
