SistaCare: Radical Love & Belonging
Self care group centering Black/Africana women
SistaCare is a self-care and community-building group that centers undergraduate and graduate students who identify as Black/Africana women (e.g. transgender, cisgender) and femmes, regardless of their gender expression*. The opening quote, penned by writer Audre Lorde in 1988, illuminates the necessity of Black women to intentionally cultivate, grow, and maintain practices of self-care as both a personal and political act. In doing so, we directly challenge systems of oppression that seek to dehumanize and devalue Black Women.
Being in a loving relationship with ourselves, the communities we belong to, and romantic partners require continuous work, communication, and compromise. Radical love in turn requires the awareness of how one's lived experiences and identities impact how we experience love and how this influences sense of belonging. Join us as we discuss what radical love is and how to cultivate self-awareness of how our identities impact our relationships.
