Black Women, Laying Our Burdens Down: Dispelling the "Strong Black Woman" Myth
Time & Location
About the Event
Black Women spend a lot of time and energy protecting the mind, body, and soul of everyone else around them without taking nearly a fraction of that energy to protect their own minds, bodies, and souls. There is no way for Black Women to become free until we learn the fine art of putting ourselves first and finding strategies that will keep us from carrying the burdens of the entire world on our shoulders.
The morning will be filled with inspirational speakers who will discuss the burdens they carry each day and the strategies they use to release them. Other sessions will allow participants to voice their concerns and possible solutions. We want “laying down burdens” to become more than a hypothetical or metaphysical activity but an actual activity that can be charted and put into motion.
