On this episode, Dr. Ibe-Lamberts and Mrs. Abiodun Durojaye, a doctoral candidate, discuss her research work which involves why African and Black immigrants feel the need to change their authentic African name to something more westernized in order to attain success. Does us being able to express our authentic self require a level of privilege? What do the African names that we plan to give our children mean for their potential opportunities to be successful in America. Is this experience only limited to immigrants or does this affect African Americans as well. We discuss all that and more!
