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 sixteenth day of our series wore a t-shift with Malcolm X holding on a gun to school at ten years old. Dr. Skylar Walkes has been doing liberatory work within the academic plantation. Skylar uses her skills, knowledge and abilities to help others free their mind.
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 16.
