  A few months ago we had an eye-opening conversation with author Yolo Akili about his article, Gay Men’s Sexism and Women’s Bodies.

Today Yolo is back with us to talk about his new book, Dear Universe: Letters of Affirmation and Empowerment for All of Us. As always, Yolo is full of wisdom, and we hope he comes to Louisville one day and becomes Strange Fruit’s official Life Coach.

This week in Juicy Fruit we talk about an ugly incident that happened to one of our favorite people, Dr. Brittney Cooper. Dr. Cooper wrote about the experience in a piece for Salon: The N-word on the 4th of July.
