“If you hear the dogs, keep going. If you see the torches in the woods, keep going. If there's shouting after you, keep going. Don't ever stop. Keep going. If you want a taste of freedom, keep going.”—Harriet Tubman
That’s how @stevie.santangelo started last nights conversation “Intersections of race and wellness” together with @dkayembe@thecristalline and @glowmaven. I wrote some notes down here:
*Understand that the brown and black woman carries a different weight inside.
*Choose self preservation.
*”Whatever I do, I do as a whole person.”
*Nobody can do whatever you’re here to do.
*”If I don’t feel better after I see you.” I don’t even engage. *You have to honor yourself.
*Don’t be afraid of doing the work for yourself first. *Hone your intuition and learn to trust yourself. *”I would like to see us supported.”
*It’s the responsibility of our allies to help, do the work and support.
*How are you going to use the lens of social justice to do your work?
*How can you be best of service?
*Your home is your foundation—Is it supporting you?
*Before it is strong it has to be awkward.
*Questions don’t hurt, ignorance does.
*Be curious, ask and connect. All hope is possible, all change is possible.
*Walk in the direction of your higher self, go back and take a sister with you.
*My legacy is my action.
*”Each of you have the strength of Harriet Tubman.” Each of you has the power. *”Choose your story, choose your role.”
*I don’t explain things that they can google (e.g. racism).
*”Be present with yourself, you don’t have to engage with everything.”
*”You write your own story that you choose.”
*”What is my legacy, what is my gift, what is that you want to create? Live it and embody it.”
*”Spread the wealth.” Make resources accessible to your sisters. *”Don’t Be Afraid to use your voice.”
*”Help create the future.”
Yes to your soul. Yes to your higher self. Yes to preserving your energy. Yes to letting go of negative vibrations. Yes to connecting with each other. Yes to speaking your voice. Yes to asking questions. ~~~ Thank you to every single person who made last nights’ talk happen. Your everyday work is seen. Keep on keeping on #blackhistorymonth
The U.S. women's ice hockey team won Olympic gold, but they won an even harder fight for equal pay off the rink. Way to go ladies. This win is not just for the USA but for women around the world. Respect! Credit: Now This
