This week, let's revisit a conversation I had back in 2021 with Mary-Frances Winters about Black fatigue. Particularly for Black women.
This conversation is just as relevant now in 2022, as it was last year and Mary-Frances delivers a message of self-care and systemic change that I want you to take to heart.
Even if you heard it when our conversation was first released, I invite you to listen again with fresh ears.
When I ran across the book, Black Fatigue: How Racism Erodes the Mind, Body, and Spirit, by Mary-Frances Winters, I had already gone through various renditions of COVID, the racism that has always been there...
I was really, really, really tired, not so much in a sleepy way, but my soul was tired.
This book helped me to understand more about what I'm looking at in my own life and in the work that I do with women.
