Meet co-hosts Kaiama L. Glover and Tami Navarro.
Since 2015, Tami and Kaiama have been working together to curate conversations between cultural producers whose work reflects their experience of Caribbean diaspora. Held at Barnard College, these events have served as a space of community on campus and far beyond.Featuring Jamaica Kincaid & Tiphanie Yanique, Edwidge Danticat & Victoria Brown, Gloria Joseph & Naomi Jackson, Dionne Brand & Claudia Rankine, Erna Brodber & Nicole Dennis-Benn, Maryse Condé & Fabienne Kanor, Roxane Gay & Katia Ulysse, and Staceyann Chin & Alexis Gumbs – these pairings have brought together distinct voices in powerful dialogue. In this first episode, the co-hosts discuss the move from live events to the podcast and reflect on what this platform can offer in the way of building and sustaining community despite the challenges of the current moment.
