Published on April 26, 2022

The well-intentioned “strong Black woman” stereotype limits Black women to only their strength, which can lead to harmful experiences in the workplace and in medical care situations. Daily Show producer Chelsea Williamson and creator and showrunner of Amazon’s “Harlem,” Tracy Oliver, join Roy Wood Jr. to dissect and analyze what being a “strong Black woman” means and how Black men and onscreen representation can help provide safer spaces for Black women. #DailyShow

    Absolutely love this. I swear most TV shows about black women are always showing the struggle, no happiness, no fun scenes, it’s always damaged and broken episodes. Like y’all we are also happy beings. Sigh!.

    Thank you so much for sharing this. There are so many jewels of humanity in this conversation for people of all colors, plus it gives insights to what issues the black culture is facing. @35:40 Men vs women: Men try to “ignore the pain and try to solve the problem.” That’s pretty universal. They didn’t talk about the flip side of what women have a tendency to do. That would’ve been interesting to hear their perceptions.

    “What are the ways that we can extend grace to others?” Great question that both sexes can ask, regardless of culture.

    AND… hahaha!… Nap Church. “I’m going to join that church ‘cos then I can nap at work and they can’t fire me because it’s my religion.” Those were my take-aways. What are yours?

    Hey CHELSEA WILLIAMSON or ROY WOOD JR… don’t know if you’ll read this, but is there something you can do to turn on the Daily Show YouTube videos in Italy? When I try to watch them, it says the show has made them unavailable in my country. I’m glad this one was turned on for us over here. Thank you.

    I LOOOOVED EVERYTHING about Harlem! I put it off for a couple of weeks fearing that it would be full of stereotypes, but I was wrong; It was a breath of fresh air.
