In this episode I am joined by Kassidi Jones. Kassidi is a PHD candidate in African American Studies in English at Yale University, social justice advocate, and content creator behind @gingers_naps on Instagram. In addition to posting super cute pics of her dog Ginger, she discusses the intersections of race and animal welfare. We dive into the fraught relationship between African Americans and dogs in the United States and the discrimination that still shows up today. We also discuss how we as pet parents and those that work in the pet industry, can do our part to bring about change.
