#ThatBlackCouple Ep 18 – “Do Good Work and Don’t Be Trash”
There will always be those people who aren’t doing the work for the right reasons. Sometimes, people are seeking status and fame rather than justice for all people. We are going to talk about that (and them) on this episode. Get into it!
In the first segment, we explain the meaning of the motto “Do good work and don’t be trash.”
In the second segment, we discuss how we model the motto in our daily lives from how Daren checks his privilege to how Jenn uses her platform to elevate the work of other Black women.
In the third segment, we talk through how not being trash requires being critical when necessary and why you should always put more emphasis on your work than accolades.
