Here are the show notes:
Yolonda Jones: creative spirit. writer. professional photographer, professional natural hair stylist, professional singer, professional Black girl as Dr. Yaba Blay would say. Yolonda’s crown rises high like her ambitions and her intentions. She and her partner, her husband, Will, are raising 4 free people, two daughters and twin sons, while simultaneously raising themselves as creatives, as business owners, as people with flaws and fire. Yolonda and Will have a blog called The Real Life Joneses where they risk expression about life in and beyond the brokenness. They talk about PTSD, depression, liberatory approaches to education and living with children, infidelity, creative brilliance, all of it. #POCinSDE
