Black parents don’t play when it comes to respecting elders--whether they deserve it or not--and this can be problematic. That’s why Tre’vell and Jarrett get personal about the good, the bad, and the trauma of respecting elders. They get into the differences between white and Black parenting, how slavery factors into ideas of respect, and how “respecting your elders” still shows up in their professional and personal relationships as grown ass adults.

Jarrett asked Tre’vell, “Do you wanna be accountability partners?” when they set out on their umpteenth fitness journey, which sparked this conversation that seeks to define good accountability partnerships.
