In Emotional Emancipation (EE) Circles, we come together to:
Share our stories and feelings, always respecting the humanity and dignity of each EE Circle member;
Deepen our understanding of the impact of historical forces on our emotion lives, our relationships, and the well-being of our communities;
Free our minds and spirits from the lies of white superiority and Black inferiority, and heal from the historical and continuing trauma of racism;
Tell ourselves a new, liberating, and empowering story about who we are as people of African ancestry;
Revitalize ourselves and our relationships with each other;
Learn and practice essential emotional wellness skill to help us be at our very best-as individuals and as a people;
Develop strategies to extinguish the lies of white superiority and Black inferiority-once and for all.
This group will meet on a bi-weekly or monthly basis (at the will of the group) for a total of 9 sessions. Materials will be provided to members free of charge.
