Womayn of the African Diaspora (WOAD) confront the reality of being in spaces in which they are simultaneously the backbones and the doormats of their communities. Forced to make the choice between surviving, or living and thriving.
Community Advocacy and Healing Project is honored to harvest the stories of WOAD and their contributions in transforming the world before and during COVID19. We are on a 21 day journey to checkin and learn from WOAD.
Womayn of the African Diaspora are working tirelessly to assist and transform their communities. It takes 21 days to create a habit. Our series is our effort in creating the habit of acknowledging, honoring, and hearing the stories of WOAD. The stories of their lives and how they are assisting girls and womayn of the African and their communities.
Our feature for the fourteenth day of our series is a beacon of a light. She is an actress, poetress, teacher, advocate, and unapologetically serving Womayn of the African Diaspora as a board-member of Black Mamas ATX. Kelene Blake-Fallon has used her voice, skills, and talent to bring awareness to the uncertainties and struggles of mothers of the African Diaspora. It was such a joy to hear from Kelene.
We invite you to take a moment to pause, drink some water and listen to our session of the State of Womayn of the African Diaspora Day 14.
