Going Back to Move Us Forward: A Conversation with Dr. Cynthia Dillard (Nana Mansa II of Mpeasem, Ghana, West Africa)
Montgomery, Nicholl
Equity & Excellence in Education, v49 n4 p493-497 2016
The Black Lives Matter movement has brought much needed attention to the police brutality that has plagued Black communities nationwide for decades. This increased attention has sparked much needed dialogue about what it means to be Black in America. Unfortunately, many of these conversations continue to leave Black women voiceless. This lack of voice within the movement allows for the continued oppression of Black women and girls. This essay explores wellness as resistance and survival for Black girls and women. In order to understand wellness, the essay explores what wellness could look like and what steps one could take to be well.
