Upcoming Broadcasts

Writer, college professor, and advocate for Black business women, Elizabeth Leiba joins on Wednesday, February 8 @ 6pm EST to share her thoughts about women in the workplace and discuss her upcoming book, I'm Not Yelling: A Black Woman's Guide to Navigating the Workplace. Elizabeth's passion for Black history changed her life and catapulted her into a fulfilling line of work as a powerful advocate of social justice and equity for Black women, and a creator of resources which support, empower, and amplify Black business women and their businesses. She was featured in the 2020 New York Times article, ?Black LinkedIn Is Thriving. Does LinkedIn Have a Problem With That?,? which highlighted her social justice advocacy work. The response to this article spurred her to launch her online, accessible e-learning platform, Black History & Culture Academy, the stunning educational resource which earned her the recognition of a LinkedIn TOP VOICE in Education in 2020. She is also the host of Black Power Moves, a podcast on EBONY Media Covering Black America Podcast Network and is a published writer. In early 2022, Elizabeth launched her website directory, Black Women Handle Business, which is the premier website for Black women entrepreneurs and professionals to network, collaborate and share resources.
