TCP: Surviving Sisterhood



By a show of hand or slow head nod, how many of you have been hurt by someone you called “Sis”? How many of you struggle to move past the disappointment, pain, drama, and trauma of that sisterhood? If you have answered yes to these questions, let's chat! Many of us have been hurt by someone or a tribe of women whom we shared secrets, laughs, ugly cries, and life-changing moments with. Many times we are blinded by the red flags, hateful, and toxic behavior masked by jokes, slander, lies, and gossip. Sisterhood isn’t always Instagram pics at brunch drinking endless mimosas. Sisterhood is a sacred sister circle, rites of passage of Black womanhood, a safe space to lay your burdens down about personal and professional issues, and not worrying about judgment or having your business in the streets. But that’s not always the case! Sometimes sisterhood is painful, connections of women that are used to achieve goals and plans or to project statuses of success or the upper class. In this open and safe space, we are going to discuss the tough topic of surviving sisterhood.
Recognizing the “red flags” of those you call “Sis”
Surviving and healing from the abusive and toxic sisterhood
Protecting yourself and understand the grief process when you end a toxic relationship
Finding a sisterhood that is in alignment with your values, beliefs, and authentic self

Creating healthy boundaries and understanding why reciprocal energy is essential for a healthy sisterhood to thrive and impact positively others

Being Black in America: I Am Black, Not A Person of Color



I am a Black American not a woman/person of color. What’s the difference? Being a Black American whom ancestors went from :
✔️ slavery
✔️ sharecropping
✔️2 parts Northern migrations due to lynching and harsh Jim Crow laws 
✔️Segregation to the Civil Rights movement
✔️Limitations of Affirmative Action policies
✔️Redlining 
✔️Limited or no wealth
✔️Environmental racism such as broken school systems/toxic waste sites/food deserts
✔️Job discrimination due to hair texture and ethnic sounding names 
✔️Bank and mortgage companies predatory practices and blatant racism
 ✔️400 plus years of holistic brokenness 
✔️Institutionalized racism including racist policies and laws
✔️My brothers and sisters getting gun down
✔️Genocide
✔️Lack of quality insurance and medical needs
✔️Aging 7 times quicker due to holistic stress
✔️A constant state of rage
✔️Lack of Safety and Security while breathing, exercising, attending school, sleeping, chilling, and etc
✔️Highest Birth and Child mortality/Medical Apartheid 
✔️Mass incarceration of Black Men
✔️Drugs and other addictions ravishing my community/Still recovering from the Crack epidemic, three strikes policies, and '94 Crime Bill
✔️Pandemic ravishing and killing my people at an alarming rate

We are owed reparations, restitution, repair, and restoration! We have been owed this debt since we have been violently snatched from our original place. You owe my parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, and great-grandparents and the list continues. We are still being feared, don’t have a place of refuge due to my ancestors being violently forced into slavery, breeding camps, plantations,  and the list continues.

Excuse me,  if I don’t claim or say people/women of color! My experience as a Black American woman is unique, unadulterated, and unapologetic. We have been here for 400 years and counting. We are the alchemist and we aren't going anywhere. Our stories are historic and damn near paramount and I refuse to water down my lineage to blend in and be forgotten.
