Black Trauma: Using Our Voices to Effectuate Change with Kettisha Jones and Demetra Ford
Recognizing pain and trauma and addressing it head on is an important part of our wellness journey. The recent deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, and Breonna Taylor has forced many of us, including myself, to reflect upon our lives and how the constant and systematic mistreatment of Black people has shaped us as people. The systematic racism has shaped many of us into who we are today and how we move and live within this world. It is an added burden to our existence as Black people, that whites simply do not share.
In this special episode, I share how racism has affected my life and I have invited Kettisha Jones and Demetra Ford to share their experiences as Black women living in this current environment. I hope this episode inspires you to reflect within and share your trauma with others however you deem fit and mobilize and take action to effectuate change. And remember one way to take action is to vote and be counted!
If you are a non-Black person, who cannot relate to the Black experience, this is a great episode to give you a glimpse of what three Black women deal with on a daily basis.
