Welcome to Black Girl Burn Out with Kelley. Today I want to talk to you about Opting Out of Silence.
In many ways, American Culture encourages abuse-related silence.
Medical professionals often don’t even believe Black Women when they speak up about their pain. However, the time has come for us to amplify safe environment assistance programs whereby Black Women can feel safe to speak out about verbal abuse, domestic violence, and sexual assault. If you or someone that you care about is silently enduring pain, this episode is for you. Violence against Black Women is not just historical, going back to times of slavery, but at present a very real problem.
Let’s talk about it.
