We have collaborated with over 55 diverse Black Healers, Artists, Activists, & Educators to create a magical month full of Black love, Black revelry, Black (he)art, Black vulnerability, Black intimacy, Black healing, and so much Black joy planned just for you!

We have events every single day of the week, sometimes two to three times a day – each one offering something unique and special for Black people of all ages, identities, genders, and sexual orientations. All events will include ASL interpretation by the amazing organization, Pro Bono ASL, and offer automated live captioning.

Family, whoever you are, wherever you come from, whatever your experiences are, YOU ARE WELCOME HERE! You are home and you are safe. Join us to connect, heal, grow, scream, wail, cry, laugh, love, learn, imagine, relax, and hopefully fall in deep and sustained love/friendship/familyship with each other. This is a shame free, judgement free, JOY centered, sacred space.

We love you. Let’s Uplift Glorify and Love Ourselves Together – And Create A World Where All Other Black People Can As Well! Thank you SO much for joining us for this gentle, loving, fun, and deeply melanated revolution!!!!!!

You’re invited to come as you are and welcome others with (NO SHADE/NO SHAME) as we intentionally buildup our community and hold space for one another with empathy, human connection, and refreshing dialogue. There will be interactive fun, self- reflection, group sharing, dancing and a musical performance featuring GoodLOVE- a husband and wife duo comprised of Latriece Love-Goodlett & David Goodlett. You’ll also get sneak peaks of the littles wfh with kids. 🙂
