The Colored Girl Beautiful podcast is narrative non-fiction storytelling podcast about Black womanhood that was created as a way to process some of the themes in the book, The Colored Girl beautiful, which was published in 1916. The book itself is the first etiquette book ever written for Black women. Some of the themes included in the text are motherhood, personal appearance and work. Each episode of the podcast covers a single theme taken from a passage in the text. Black women were interviewed for each topic and their thoughts on each issue were used to provide a modern perspective. Discussion between the show's host and producer provides context for the interview. The show as a whole is structured as a letter to the author as a way to compare concepts of beauty and perceptions of Black women in the early 1900's to what they are today. This work explores the creation of the podcast 'The Colored Girl Beautiful' and the efforts required to produce meaningful good quality podcast content.
