Shanita Hubbard argues that Black women have sacrificed their own personal and professional lives for the well-being of others.  She posits that this mentality needs to be addressed to ensure that a Black woman’s self-worth is not defined by the amount of time she puts in everyone but herself.  Shanita Hubbard will be joined in conversation by bestselling author D. Watkins.

Shanita Hubbard is a writer and professor whose work has appeared in several publications, including The New York Times, The Guardian, Essence, and The Huffington Post.

D. Watkins is the author of five books, editor-at-large for Salon, and a University of Baltimore lecturer.
