Music heard on this week's show: 

What began as the proverbial "straw," became a tee-shirt, then a hashtag  trending among Black women scholars on Twitter. Now, it's a movement that has seized the imaginations -- the validated the experiences -- of women in every field. 


What happened to Dr. Christen Smith PhD at a professional conference could happen to anyone -- especially anyone who's an African American woman, man, or a woman of every hue worldwide.  Whether a university professor, a grocery store clerk, a corporate executive up against that 'glass ceiling,' or a presidential candidate; we can all relate. 

It's time to #CiteBlackWomen's accomplishments.  Time for a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T. (With thanks and remembrance due Aretha Franklin!)
