In a segment we’re calling “Make It Make Sense,” Pastor Gabby Cudjoe Wilkes of the Double Love Experience church in Brooklyn, New York stops by the show today to help decode the age-old term “strong Black woman.”

Although we all use the term in a positive light, sometimes it can put too much pressure on Black women to be exceptional in the face of adversity. This notion goes back to the days of slavery, so trust this isn’t a new ideology in the least bit.
