Define U Radio

Nov 11 2020 57 mins

Hey ya’ll, I am Valencia, your host of Define U Radio After Dark Conversations. Have you ever wondered what real people really talk about when the gloves are off? Do you think you are the only one who thinks like you do about the world today? Are you ready to hear adult conversations?In today’s world, the ignorant and biased people are loud. They don’t represent the “silent” majority’s views or how we really feel. On After Dark, I have conversations with friends of mine about life and what is on our mind. Sometimes, we agree and are on the same page. Other times we disagree, but either way everyone’s opinion is respected and represented here. Valencia is an author, speaker, and a business owner. Most of all, she is a wife, mother and a black woman maneuvering everything from foster parenting to dealing with racism to questioning systematic programming by the media.“Have conversations that mean something!”Join the conversation every Tuesday for new episodes (unless we are on a mental health break) and start a conversation with your friends, family, and foes.

Motherless Child is a journey from childhood to motherhood as the author navigates the waters of being an addict’s daughter. Growing up fast, welcomed by gangs, shunned by her family and finding motherhood early should have sealed her fate. Instead, Valencia showed courage and an undeniable will to live in the darkest hours of her life.This heart-wrenching story unfolds through glimpses and recollections of her mother, a woman she never knew till long after her death. Raw, poignant and brutally honest, “Motherless Child” steps into the void and reveals hope and forgiveness through pain. Open, honest and often shocking, “Motherless Child” exposes a falsehood far too many of us have been led to believe – that those raised in addiction will fall victim themselves. With uncommon strength and determination, she resolved to forgive her mother and defy the statistics that once defined her." Tonight's quote: "Be too stubborn to prove the statistics right."-VG Wallace
