One thought on “LPA – Cultural Appropriation – An Interview with Joanna Kadi – January 7, 1996

  1. I enjoyed this interview so much! Moreover, I agree with the reasoning that depending on our social, political, and economic background, women are self aware of their potential in different scenarios and places. Loved the playlist!
