‘Truth’s Table’ Authors Talk Early Beginnings, Centering Black Women, and Inspiring One Another

Faithfully Magazine spoke with Ekemini Uwan and Christina Edmondson, two of the hosts of the “Truth’s Table” podcast about their new book, Truth’s Table: Black Women’s Musings on Life, Love, and Liberation.

Associate Editor Timothy Isaiah Cho spoke with Uwan and Edmondson about the story behind the Truth’s Table, themes they discuss in the book, and the growth of their popular podcast.

In the introduction to your book, you talk about the humble beginnings of how “Truth’s Table” the podcast began. Can you talk a little bit about how things may have changed since the beginning to now?

Edmondson: I would say like broad brushstrokes that we have always been thinking about our response to the present social moment. And the social moments have changed over the last five… I don’t know how long we’ve been doing this, because we’ve had two COVID years they feel like seven years added, you know, they’re like dog years. I think in that sense, you’ve seen us work through our emotions and our own racial trauma and our own joys and hopes. I think if you go back, you can probably see or listen in for the ways in which we shift and we work through how we’re processing what’s happening in society, how it’s impacting us.

We’ve become even more clear about some things that were assumed. We’ve said them out loud. And we did that very early on. We did that in the first season. But I think we have always tried to be clear about the making of the table, who the table is for who we are centering and why that’s important to us. And I think we’ve all we’ve all pretty consistently maintained that commitment, even as we do work that crosses various kind of cultural boundaries, so to speak.
