“Self-Care for Black Women is so wonderful in its specificity. In a world where the self-care space is dominated by white women, even the mention of self-care without race is indirectly for white women. And there’s a big difference. The way that women of color, specifically Black women, experience misogyny and racism in tandem, can create a sense of world weariness that nags at the mind, body, and soul. It’s more important now than ever for Black women to prioritize their self-care and celebrate what they have to offer the world.”
