About the Event
Who is this series for?
- This series is for Black womxn who desire to further explore their relationships with their minds and bodies, how their experiences mirror or are dissimilar to those of our foremothers, and how popular culture and society shape our perspectives and our relationships with others, romantically and otherwise. The discussion series will take place in a cohort model, with Black women's wellbeing, joy, and sisterhood as its core intentions.
What is this series about?
- Jazmine Sullivan's 'Heaux Tales' album is a celebration of Black womxn's journeys with love, their bodies, and their romantic partnerships.

In this series, we will explore Black womxn's relationships with our bodies, minds, and relationships, historically and in present day.
