Dating, in general, comes with its own set of issues, but when you add cultural clashes and sensitivities to the mix, things can get extremely difficult — even if we are talking about people of the diaspora. Piggybacking off of yesterday’s conversation on dating Black men abroad, in this episode of Listen to Black Women, Shamika Sanders chats with Bianca C. Williams, author of The Pursuit of Happiness: Black Women, Diasporic Dreams, and the Politics of Emotional Transnationalism, and special guest co-hosts Africa Miranda and Jessie Woo about the complexities of dating outside your culture.
