The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

Earlier this week marked the ending of the Tokyo Olympics and there was no shortage of stories about Black women athletes both leading up to and during the games. To help us dig a little deeper into some of the ways that gender and race intersected during the Olympics and through sports history, today I’m joined by Dr. Leeja Carter, an Associate Professor of Exercise Psychology at the intersection of racial and gender equity at Temple University. Dr. Carter and I chatted about the ways that gendered racism shows up in sports, how the strong black woman trope impacts athletes, how athletes are using platforms like social media to tell more of their story, and how athletes like Simone Biles & Naomi Osaka are ushering in a change about how athletes take care of themselves.
