Black and White Momcast

In a special Labor Day episode, Kaanji and Tara are joined by two very special guests, fellow moms Dominique and Dianthe.   All four mothers share their wildly different labor and delivery stories that involve orange juice, epidurals, a presidential inauguration and Dominos pizza!  

The one takeaway from each story is that when it comes to labor and motherhood, no amount of planning can prepare you for real life.   Later in the episode, Kaanji and Tara discuss the passing of two Black icons this week - actor Chadwick Boseman and legendary Georgetown coach, John Thompson.

Kaanji and Tara are both anti-racism advocates and members of the leadership team for Embrace Action, an anti-racism advocacy and educational nonprofit organization. You can learn more about Embrace Action by visiting www.embraceaction.org 


Tara Bio:
Tara is a bank executive living in North Dallas with her husband and son.   A recovering overachiever that tends to stretch herself a bit thin trying to be all things to all people, she’s learning more and more about how to strive for ordinary.  She loves Beyonce, dancing in the kitchen, inappropriate conversations with her girlfriends, laughing with her family, and hyping other people up.  She’s currently halfway through an MBA program and aspires to serve in a capacity that empowers women in her community.  She is always a work in progress.


Kaanji Bio. 
Kaanji is a coach, anti-racism advocate and practicing attorney.  She’s passionate about engaging people in honest and authentic conversations about the Black experience in America.  California-born and raised and a recovering New Yorker, proud Georgetown alum Kaanji resides in the Dallas suburb of Frisco, TX with her husband and 11-year old son.  A self-professed wine connoisseur and lover of all things Prince, she holds space in the company of amazing friends and a supportive family.
