BrownTown on BrownTown. The fellas take a step back to discuss the importance of self love, self care, and self understanding. In order to do right in the world, we must first do right by ourselves.
In a complex and turbulent world, everyday folks, BrownTown included, find it increasingly difficult to take a step back and find time for themselves. BrownTown discusses techniques, introspective questions, and personal experiences dealing with self care and self love. In order to put quality work and positive energy out into the world, we must find ways to put these into practice in our daily lives. As always, they tie broader models for understanding and caring for oneself to macro-level systems of oppression and privilege. While acknowledging that self care and mental health are now in the mainstream conversation, BrownTown points out the problematic intersections with toxic masculinity and marginalization of Black and Brown voices. Lastly, they shoutout some Chicago-based groups that are fostering communities that encourage self love, self understanding, and self expression. So remember, love yourself, take care of yourself, understand yourself, and, most importantly, TREAT YO'SELF!
