PURPOSE

“You are a Black woman. You have two strikes against you at birth. One you are Black. Two you are a woman. You will not get respected because of this. You will be created lower because of this” – Mommi ❤

My mother told me at age seven that I am a minority, not because this what she saw me as, but because that is where society placed me. She would explain that this is based on my identity.

“You are a Black woman. You have two strikes against you at birth. One you are Black. Two you are a woman. You will not get respected because of this. You will be created lower because of this, “She said.

Those words would be repeated throughout my life to prepare me for the real world. They stuck with me since I was little until now. As I matured her statements became valid. Growing up as  Black woman in America taught me that Black women are seen and not heard. Our personalities are assumed and not learned. We are created lower than any other group and it’s because of an identity we did not choose to have.

The main purpose of  this website is to acknowledge the struggles Black women endure as well as the social norms they are forced to live up to that are constructed by society. I’m going to be doing interviews with Black women about their identity and how it has been shaped and constructed by the society around them, but also why it’s important to embrace an identity that is constantly broken down. This blog is about the Black Woman Experience. Enjoy.
