Angela Rye (#Woke100) and Candice Benbow (4:43 essayist)
Politico and lawyer Angela Rye was featured on the cover of Essence's Woke 100 issue for her smart and peppered analysis of issues affecting marginalized communities. She tells Yolanda and Cori about her start in politics, how to stay woke and a preview of her new podcast On 1 with A. Rye. Ladies, can we talk about the trail of heartbreak left behind from a breakup you never saw coming? Did you give too much? Did he give too little? Candice Benbow, the author of 4:43, the viral internet response to JAY-Z's 4:44, sits down to discuss her emotional piece, social media's response and how women heal after a love lost.
