“When we started our Conversation Series, and we hosted writers’ workshops, I didn’t realize it would open this many doors for Black women across all age groups and industries,” she says. “[Taking part in the BlackFemaleProject] has been the most life-changing thing I’ve done to date, as far as personal and professional goals [go].”
In this way the vision of our project has expanded, story by story, and is transforming into a movement that honors the voices of Black women.
Before launching this campaign we had never asked for donations. In hopes of lifting up our stories in as many ways as possible, we are now asking for your support.
We believe deeply in the power of storytelling to spur healing and growth; my own experience of healing through sharing my story is a testament of this belief, as are the many equally powerful experiences of the other BlackFemaleProject participants. We need to hear from more women who have walked in our shoes, a few or many steps ahead on the journey. Financial backing from our community and beyond will allow us to persevere. I hope you will join the ranks of bold, beautiful, brave Black women defying stereotypes, demonstrating excellence with grace, working hard, and loving harder.
