Naked Conversations: Race, Culture, & Beyond

Mar 3, 2021

On today’s show we welcome our first guest of the season - the brilliant attorney Ifeoma Ibekwe - who specializes in estate planning for women of color.

We discuss:

  • How a budding studio artist became an attorney
  • How being the child of immigrant parents impacted her career
  • Generational wealth, its importance, and the connection to worthiness
  • The historical systems that work against Black Americans creating generational wealth
  • The power of land ownership for generations to come

Thank you for listening to the show. It is such an honor and joy to have these conversations with you. They are necessary and needed and we are here to do the work.
