So for all those who don’t know, what is Ace of Shade?

Ace of Shade is a podcast for dope ass women who are out here just trying to navigate through this maze we call life.

So ladies, how did you all  come up with the name Ace Of Shade? Does it have a special meaning?

We literally set in a room for about an hour to two hours trying to think of something that describes us and that will be appealing to an audience. So, we came up with, “Ace of Shade,” because we are all so very full of it. We’re not going to say we’re the best to ever do it, but we come pretty damn close.

 While coming up with the name what was or is the current goal of the podcast?

The goal of the podcast is to inspire others. We all wanted to create a safe place for women to come without judgment and to know that they are not alone. We want to provide alternate ways of thinking that help others to achieve their goals, process and resolve any life issues they may be experiencing. To make people laugh, smile, and cry if they need to and most importantly to have fun!

We wanted a podcast that was a representation of who we are which is fun, full of life and shade baby!

Inspiration, judgement free and relatable! Now that’s my kind of show. Do you all offer any services or products?

Yes! The ladies of “Ace of Shade” can host or speak at your next event. If interested you can reach out to us via email at We are currently working on Ace of Shade Apparel to be released later this year.

Since we are on the topic, are there any events coming up that you all will be a part of? 

Ace of Shade is currently working on community events such as HBCU (Historically Black College and University) Networking Mixer and a Zumba Fitness Party.

Keshia: Black Girls Are A Movement is currently hosting workshops and doing speaking engagements to address the self esteem needs and concerns of young girls and women all over the world.

Okay, I see y’all! It really looks like this is just the beginning for Ace of Shade.  Were can we find you on social media for updates?
