Man listen words can even express how proud I am of my son. A&B Honor Roll is a huge accomplishment especially when they wanted to label him as having ADHD for not being able to sit still like a robot for 8 hours a day! No child is able to do that but we understand how the system wasn’t built for us to be great anyway but nevertheless he proved the system wrong! I’m a very very proud dad! ✊🏾💯🖤 #blackexcellence#blackkings

“Dismantling Strong Black Womanhood”
“When asked to describe black women, mostly all of the answers will center around black women's strength. The notion of strong black womanhood is instilled in us at an early age and carries into adulthood. We learn early on how to suppress our emotions, especially those in response to sexual and emotional abuse in black households.”
“As we grow older, we continue to internalize the need to exhibit strength at all times, in all aspects. Unrealistic expectations of black women work to portray the myth of the Black Superwoman, which is ultimately harmful to the mental and emotional health of black women who are expected to adhere to this myth.”
“The myth of the Black Superwoman is a manifestation of the Strong Black Woman schema, which is comprised of various factors that combine to reinforce the perceived strength of black women.”
