Poignant Reminder That Representation Matters on Fangirls Going Rogue

It was a blast to have Kai Charles of Fictional State of Mind and Black Girl Nerds on the Fangirls Going Rogue. She’s a long time Star Wars friend. There was a moment when she talked about Finn in The Force Awakens and what it meant to her nephew that drove home why representation matters. I hope you’ll listen.
