I am Beautiful
I am Powerful
I am Magical
I am Female
I am Black
I am who I say I am, not who they tell me I am.
Black woman as a matter of course, have been a told 1,001 ways what we are NOT.
We are not special, we are not valuable, we are not beautiful, we are not feminine, we are not soft, we are not the ideal and therefore we can’t…have.
We can’t have our Happiness; as we are expected to spend our lives in “the struggle” We can’t have our Identity; as it is exploited by others
We can’t have our stories; as they are written by a society that says we are not.
We would it mean if we not only told our stories, but lived them too? If we were the full recipients of our own strength, and power? If we delighted in our own efforts? If we used our magic for us, and not felt compelled to freely offer it up to a world that will take it happily and then deny where it came from?
BWSS Black Women’s program in hosting a Fall Series Workshop for the month of September titled: “I’m a Black Girl, and my Magic is for ME!
We will come together in a safe space for Black Women to discuss the dynamics of Identity; and the Beautiful, Powerful, Magical gifts that we received as a generational inheritance. We will provide mutual support, tell our truths, and gain skills for empowerment and self-representation.
Workshop Dates and Time: Wednesday evenings in September from 6 pm to 8 pm
September 5th, 12th, 19th & 26th
Location: My Sister’s Closet, 1092 Seymour Street, Vancouver
