Almost every one of us has felt the uncomfortableness of being the “token” black person at some point in their lives. But when Laura Cathcart Robbins attended a well-known conference that attracts hundreds of people every year, she had no clue she would be the ONLY black woman at the 600+ person event. Her story became the subject of a viral Huffington Post article and the impetus for her podcast, The Only One in the Room. Today, she teaches us how “otherness” can lead to personal growth, and how vital finding community with your “tribe” is for your sense of security and belonging.
