Episode 48: Black Women & Self-Love – Parenting for Liberation
On the heels of Black History Month and Valentines Day, entering upon Women's History Month, this episode honors Black Women and Self-Love. Harkening Audre Lorde's commitment to self-love and self-care who said, “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare,” I join a couple of girlfriends for a Friday-night convo about Black women and loving on ourselves. A friend of mine, Nicole D. Vick, a public health advocate, mother, and author of Pushing Through invited me to join a live stream event with another friend, Dr. Nomsa Khalfani, a mom and an executive leader in health care, to discuss Self-Love as Political Warfare. We discuss the pressures on Black women to do it all for everyone, the need to take care of ourselves, and how self-care is community care.
