Thanksgiving is Thursday, and some are feeling the anxiety already. Seeing family in-person again could mean being exposed to painful, unpleasant interactions. How do we navigate difficult conversations when reuniting with family? When should we set boundaries and when should we tackle a thorny subject straight on? We take listener calls with Rev. Mariama White-Hammond, an advocate, facilitator and a founding-pastor at New Roots AME church in Dorchester, as well as Omar Ruiz, a licensed marriage and family therapist and owner of the practice TalkThinkThrive.

Access the StoryCorps app, recommended by Rev. Mariama White-Hammond, to create memories and explore family history.

This segment aired on November 22, 2021.
