...To a world in which all Black people have moved beyond surviving to flourishing.

The lie of White superiority and Black inferiority is the root cause of the dehumanization of Black people all across the African Diaspora. Join us on the journey toward emotional emancipation and cultural healing. Start by taking the pledge to Defy the Lie (of White Superiority and Black Inferiority) and Embrace the Truth (of Black Humanity).

Take the Pledge to Defy the Lie and Embrace the Truth

We are escaping the Euro-centric narrative grounded in the lie and writing our own narrative grounded in the truth and a renewed understanding and re-embracing of African values. We create healing spaces for us as people of African ancestry to renew our minds, bodies, and spirits––spaces in which we grapple with fundamental questions of who and whose we are, and who we want to be. Come with us.

Who am I vs. who I have been told to be?

What in the world is happening to me?

How in the world did I get here?

What makes me a human being?

   Questions developed by Cheryl Tawede Grills, Ph.D.
