Black Women Camp, Too!

with author Tasheea Nicholson

About this episode

Audra Russell chats with author Tasheea Nicholson.

Tasheea Nicholson is a multi-passionate entrepreneur whose portfolio has earned her various labels such as event planner, women’s health advocate, menstrual health educator, and outdoor enthusiast – to name a few. As a result, she has established and aligned her business initiatives with each of these areas – each rooted at the seat of her purpose, which is serving.

2019 proved to be a pivotal year for Tasheea. After 12 years of consistent upward mobility and professional success, she decided to pursue an alternate, and slightly undefined path to broaden her reach and impact.  In doing so, she quickly learned that undefined paths can give way to clarity surrounding your life’s purpose. In the first 90 days of her “new” life, she began crafting the concepts for her first book – Camping Noire: The Black Girls Guide to Surviving a Weekend Unplugged – in response to the ever-growing notion that black women don’t camp; yet, after discussing it with others in her circle, she quickly realized that she was embarking upon a movement – one that would help black and brown women reconnect with themselves and address mental health challenges head-on by returning to nature. 

Tasheea was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA but has spent the last 13 years living in Northern and Central parts of New Jersey. She is a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, and graduated from Villanova University with a B.S. in Business Administration.

We talk about her book, Camping Noire, and all things Black women camping. 

So grab your favorite beverage, sit back, and enjoy! Fair warning: you are gonna laugh!
