Taking the Journey Together
- Saturdays, 9:00am–10:00am
Taking the Journey Together is a 1 hour show that is about exploring
interpersonal concerns and problems in dating, cohabiting and building
committed relationships. The show, hosted by a mature Black couple who focuses
on Black/African American relationships, yet the show is inclusive of relationships involving diverse ethnic groups through the universality of personal relationships and the involvement of guests of different ethnicities. We feel
there is an undeniable deterioration of families; an unspoken acceptance of
dysfunction in our relationships that is not being addressed. The result is
lack of commitment in our relationships. We talk about fixing families, we talk
about fixing homes, we talk about fixing communities, but it all starts with
each person in A RELATIONSHIP!!. To be successful in relationships, we must
first fix ourselves. We must love, trust and respect ourselves so that we can
so the same with our partners.
