Meet The Speakers
🤱🏽 In honor of this year's Black Breastfeeding Week theme:
#TheBigPause: Collective Rest for Collective Power we are hosting a virtual event.
We're preparing an amazing group of speakers to meet you where you are and uplift, inspire, motivate and encourage you during Black Breastfeeding Week 2021.
💪🏾Gather in a space where we center the traditional black family to hold high-quality and deeply impactful discussions with mothers, fathers, and the workers serving our black maternal health community in every area.
🤲🏾Serving and centering the traditional black family is important because slave traders and slave owners made it a point to break them down physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually in order to create distrust and disrespect between them. Structural racism began here!
🤦🏽♀️By inhumanely separating them from each other, raping women to make them wet nurses AND men to break them psychologically before their women, selling the children of slaves couples, and even forcing them to stop speaking their African languages was a strategic effort to keep them from their oral history about their ancestral heritage of strength, courage, and faith in their Creator whom they knew long before the slaver's bible was introduced to them as a method of control.
☝🏾This is retreat is only the beginning. We are laying the foundation to dive deeper into this work in the near future.
🌍How would you feel about retreating with founder, Vanessa Simmons, to her parents hometown Accra, GHANA for the filming of her first documentary in 2022/2023?!!
