Manifesta

 

 

My work is personal and political, and grounded in creating and supporting healing, affirming and empowering spaces for Black women and girls. I am a firm believer that in order for culture to survive and progress, the spiritual, emotional, physical, and intellectual needs of women and girls must be met in a way that is nurturing and restorative.

I do not believe that Black women and girls need a savior, as they are their own saviors. I do believe that Black women and girls have been, and continue to be, maligned in ways both direct and covert, from without and within the spaces they inhabit. I also believe that the self-actualization of Black women and girls lies in the ability to understand, embody and assert their freedom.

My work includes being a steward for this self-actualization.
