Ep. 6 Melissa Guida-Richards: Unpacking Abby Johnson's comments

By Lanise Antoine Shelley

I reached out to Melissa who is actively on the front lines of educating people in the adoption community. We discuss the harmful language Abby Johnson uses to describe her own adopted son in the infamous youtube video. There are misconceptions about the black community that she perpetuates with alarming conviction. Melissa is a formidable essayist, mother, blogger, author (THE WHITE SAVIOR MENTALITY will be out in Fall 2021) and podcast host. Guest; guida-richards.com  https://adopteethoughts.com/https://www.mother.ly/u/melissaguida-richardshttps://spoonie-mama.com/index.php/about-melissa-guida-richards/@adoptee-thoughts@guidarichardsResources:Anti-racism recourseshttps://www.laniseantoineshelley.com/resourcesArticle Abby Johnson’s Comments About Her Adopted Brown Son are Problematic.
