Sisterhood for the Black Woman


…Sisterhood for the Black Woman is more than friendship. It’s a safe haven from the outside world. In a society where we rarely feel seen, heard or fully protected, a strong sister circle can be life saving.

The one place that allows us to let go, unwind, let it out or just relax. A place of emotional trust. No masks or facades needed. To be vulnerable without explanation, angry without criticism and exhausted without guilt.  A place to share resources, thoughts, traumas and triumphs. A safe space to lend an ear, a shoulder, be a prayer partner,  share a laugh,  shed a tear, have a drink, take a walk or hop a flight. A support system and mini village to whoever needs it. A tribe of like-minded women who consider each others needs and respect each others boundaries. We know the value of sisterhood and we honor its essence. shares these 4 ways to Keep your Sister Circle Strong:

1. Be available… 

  • …Check in with anyone who has had a rough year, and be accessible if she wants to ditch the Christmas Eve dinner at her aunt’s house and hang out with you

2. Be understanding

  • …You may have a friend or two who are dealing with a mental health crisis during the season and not up to coming to your annual New Year’s Eve bash. Don’t be offended. Be empathetic.

3. Be forgiving

  • …Just like marriages, friendships need commitment, forgiveness, communication and nurturing to keep them healthy.

4. Be creative

  • …Just like you have holiday traditions with your loved ones, create a ritual with your girlfriends.

By blood or by bond, women who maintain solid relationships with other women live longer. It’s true. Sisterhood is good for your health. 

Black Women in particular, have historically been the most loyal, supportive and empowering group on this planet, despite the inter-generational traumas that have for centuries been inflicted upon us.
