The Stoop: Why is it so hard for some black folks to say ‘I love you’?

Why is it hard for some black folks to say I love you? The Stoop, a new podcast about black identity, explores this question in a sneak preview of the podcast.

  • Hosts Hana Baba and Leila Day talk about the phrase in their own cultures — Sudanese American and African American, respectively.
  • Inmates inside San Quentin State Prison reflect on what "I love you" means for them.
  • Reveal host Al Letson talks about the emotional lives of black men and boys.
