Featured on the March 12th, 2020 edition of ARIZONA SPOTLIGHT with host Mark McLemore:

  • Adiba Nelson is a Tucson-based author, activist, mother, diva and queen bee. From these varied perspectives, she has been able to see many other women in action who are living, giving, and growing. And, in this month dedicated to women’s history, Nelson has a message she’d like to send, loud and clear. You can find more of Adiba Nelson's writing on her website, The Full Nelson. The music is Let You Go by Shekinah, a Southwest Soul production. Adiba Nelson is an independent contributor to this show, and her commentary does not reflect the opinions of Arizona Public Media.
