In this episode of Necessary Blackness Podcast, Rahiem Shabazz, GoddessFunmi and Ashton Breon discuss the subject of Polygamy and how most woman are in a Polygamist relationship and don’t even know it.
The cultural relativity of Polygamy as practice is Africa, where a man would marry for social status and, more importantly, for economic gains, The practice was seen as an economic necessity, since multiple wives and their children provide unpaid labor in farm fields. Historically, the first wife helped choose her co-wives, because new brides essentially became her coworkers.
