Hi! It’s Terrian & Yana, Creators and Hosts of the Melanated Conversations Podcast. We started Melanated Conversations out of the desire for a sisterly community that fostered positive and authentic expression of our voices on various topics that we experience daily.

Between Us

By Sophia Lenore

If I fall - she catches me.

When I stumble - she grabs my hand.

She’s my confidant

My safety net

My right-hand woman

My number one fan
