Sisters Supporting Sisters in Raising Healthy Black Children

Info & Registration

with Aisha Williams, PhD.

If you are looking for soul-restoring conversation with other mothers showing up for themselves and their children despite the burdens of bias, this is a powerful place to land.

This group is a deeply intentional space. We hold each other. And we help each other do our best to ensure that our homes can be a true refuge for our families, a harbor from the storms that our children necessarily will face as Black children in the United States.

Our goal is to parent wholeheartedly, in community, with those who see our value and beauty and are keenly alive to the beautiful children we are nurturing in our families.

In this group, we make time for ourselves. We reflect, listen, and honor ourselves and our histories.  We listen to each other with warmth and with the intention of supporting each other to offload old tensions and hurts. We do this so that we do not let the stresses and distresses of our histories, our ancestry, or our fraught social context, run the show.

For me, this group is an important place to make sense of the tensions we hold within ourselves, within our identities, within our histories. Mamas, whether you do this work in our group, in your own community, or in quiet daily moments of introspection – taking the time to understand where you have to hold yourself together – where you tighten up, where you feel the need to stay silent or to scream, where you are afraid of exploding – this is a radical act of mothering – of parenting. We are all fighting to create space for ourselves, so that we can fight for our beautiful children’s sense of safety, security, and belonging in this world.

We are a community creating authentic, restorative, and healing conversations to support our own well-being, as well as the vitality of our families and the humans we parent.

Wishing all of you gorgeous mamas the time and space to reflect, welcome, and appreciate all the beautiful and broken pieces that make up who we are. Warmly, Aisha Williams, Ph.D.
