Why Black Women Whisper

Reading the role of Patrice in Why Black Women Whisper has me reflecting on how necessary creating space for us to share and tell our stories really is. Getting together with the other magical Black women for rehearsal yesterday was so healing...can't wait for y'all to check out this Poetic reading created by Anne Marie Woods a.k.a Amani this Sunday Feb.4th, 2024.✨️

Why Black Women Whisper explores what happens to the mental health of the womanist, as she tries to live up to the façade of the STRONG BLACK WOMAN label. With AFRI centricity as the back beat and spoken word as the source… 5 women from different generations meet monthly at Sojourner’s Book Club to read ‘Micah’s Journey’ a slave narrative used as a catalyst to reveal each woman’s personal story.
