About the Event

Emotional Emancipation Circles (EECs) are evidence-informed, psychologically sound, culturally grounded, and community-defined self-help support groups designed to help heal the trauma caused by anti-Black racism. 

In EECs, we share stories; deepen our understanding of the impact of historical forces on our sense of self-worth, our relationships, and our communities; and learn essential emotional wellness skills to help us be at our best as individuals and as a people. 

Cultural Identity Development: Topic: Cultural Identity Development for People of African Descent 

Purpose: Expose the Lies and Heal the Soul Wound of Internalized Oppression 

Method: Emotional Emancipation Circles 

We Will: 

•Deepen our understanding of the impact of historical forces on our emotional 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 skills to help us be at our very best-–as individuals and as a people; and 

• Develop strategies to extinguish the lies of White superiority and Black inferiority–once and for all.
