Womayn of the African Diaspora (WOAD) confront the reality of being in spaces in which they are simultaneously the backbones and the doormats. Forced to make the choice between surviving, or living and thriving.
The stories of WOAD and their contributions to transforming the world before and during COVID19 are rarely told. We are taking 21 days to checkin with WOAD to hear their stories.
COVID19 has provided physical manifestations of what many know to be true. People of the global majority are disproportionately impacted institutional racism. Womayn of the African Diaspora are working tirelessly to assist and transform their communities. We are excited to launch our 21 day podcast series to highlight womayn of the African Diaspora and their work. It takes 21 days to create a habit. We are creating the habit of acknowledging, honoring, and hearing the stories of WOAD providing assistance to girls and womayn of the African and their communities.
Our first feature of our series is the birther of Fatima Mann, and so much more Pamela Mann-Colebut. Our Director believes it is important to honor and hear from the first womayn of the African Diaspora that assisted and transformed her life, her mom.
We hope you will grab some water and listen to our first session of the State of Womayn of the African Diaspora Day 1.
