In this episode of Pact’s “Yes, We Do Adopt” podcast, Malaika Parker is joined by Dr. Sam Coleman, Dr. Christine Beilard, Sandria Washington, Satcey Gatlin and Nefertiti Austin of the Black Adoption Collection, a group that is working to represent Black members of the adoption constellation. During National Adoption Awareness Month, they worked to highlight black voices through their initiative Black November. This wide-ranging conversation touches on adoptees having access to their stories, adoptive parents dealing with their feelings and emotions about connection and contact, as well as raising awareness about Black adoption.
