Here it is, video of the first live event – I can’t yet watch it (like almost every off-camera professional, I hate watching myself in video.) But that will pass, and I’ve already learned two valuable lessons: keep a toggle screen to reinvite guests whose connections drop (Tifini, I owe you!), and that index cards do not make an acceptable substitute for a teleprompter. But if you forgive my searching-for-stars-in-the-universe demeanor while opening the piece, you’ll see that my guests have a lot to say.
And that was one big point of having this hangout – among the random thoughts going on in my head while I was putting this together was that I wanted to provide a platform for people to articulate their points without worrying about 30-second soundbites. In that, I succeeded.
But enough about me – thanks to my guests:
Autumn Whitefield-Madrano from The Beheld, the leading feminist site about
beauty and what it means.
Desi K. Robinson: Producer/Creator/Host of Women In The Making: Tomorrow’s History Today, a radio show speaking to and from the perspective of today’s
Tifini Lewis: Beauty Expert, Salon Owner, and host of TheophaniStyle, a site exploring beauty, style, art, and culture.
