This is one I have been looking forward to since the idea for Being Black was conceived. I had the pleasure of sitting down with my friend Metesa and hearing her story. She has been one of my most vocal supporters from the beginning and her encouragement has been truly inspiring. This project wouldn't exist if it weren't for people like her. Thank you Metesa.

Metesa holds nothing back in our conversation. She talks about the fears she has for her son, and how they differ from the ones she has for her two daughters. She talks about being a teen mom, black equality, and much more. Please enjoy.
