Radical Self Care...Walking in the footsteps of our Ancestors!
There are far too many historical (and current) figures to choose from! October 2020: GirlTrek, a nonprofit org that promotes healthy Black women and girls--mind body and spirit--launched a 21-Day RADICAL Act of Resistance walking challenge in order to combat the overwhelming stress and anxieties of 2020 and to save lives. Me, along with 500k+ women walked for 30 minutes each day in the footsteps of our foremothers/fathers aka "spiritual warriors". It was a diverse selection: Cori Bush, Tina Turner, Gwendolyn Brooks, Nelson and Winnie Mandela, Jesse Owens, Thomas Dorsey, Alice and John Coltrane, Bishop Desmond Tutu; Colin Kaepernick; just to name a few. Their collective experiences serve as the ultimate examples and inspiration for resistance and resilience! The goal was to get 1 million women to join by end of 2020! We achieved that goal--made history again! It's now a million women strong movement! I will continue to be inspired; to walk, resist, fight for change. The struggle continues... #GirlTrek #Resistance #Resilience
