Terry McMillan's Waiting to Exhale

A couple of years ago, I came across Veil & Vow: Matters in Contemporary African American Culture (2020) by Aneeka Ayanna Henderson. Her book, published by the University of North Carolina Press, focuses on popular culture representations of black marriage and romance in novels, music, and other modes of production. 

I enjoyed her book, and when I started gathering ideas for our podcast project Remarkable Receptions, I wrote a note to seek out and introduce myself to Professor Henderson and see if she would contribute. When I made contact with her, she agreed to share.  

This episode "Terry McMillan's Waiting to Exhale" by Henderson draws from her research and her book Veil & Vow
