Welcome to a new episode of A Better Table—where host Umeko Motoyoshi talks to guests and discusses social, economic, and environmental sustainability. “Sustainability means a lot of different things, but here are my guiding questions, the questions I want to explore,” explains Motoyoshi. “What sustains communities? What sustains relationships? What sustains your heart?”

In this episode, Motoyoshi interviews Neichelle Guidry, founder of Black Girl Black Coffee, an initiative to amplify the voices and stories of Black women through specialty coffee.

“There is so much to say about Neichelle Guidry,” says Motoyoshi. “She is a leader, a creator, a scholar, a womanist, founder of Black Girl Black Coffee, and the Dean of the Chapel and the Director of the WISDOM Center at Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia.”
