Kristolyn Lloyd —"Embracing Who You Are" (Episode 47)

“It’s a sacrifice for Black women to say no. If you’re not jumping from Broadway show to Broadway as a Black woman, you are sacrificing comfort, money, moving forward in your career at the pace you want to move at.”

You get a double dose of Capricorn this week as we sit down with Kristolyn Lloyd (Dear Evan Hansen, Paradise Blue, Invisible Thread, Blue Ridge) to talk about existing in all-white spaces, challenging the insecurity of “not feeling Black enough,” and understanding that saying “no” as a Black woman can mean sacrifices.

Recommendation: Anna Deavere Smith’s Notes From the Field
