How We Begin To Heal Black America

BY: Nijiama Smalls

The abolishment of slavery did not mark the end of racial disparagement for Black America. The following decades known as the civil rights era were marked by collective rejection, fear, anxiety, poverty, and injustice. Racist legislation and discriminatory practices, such as the grandfather clause, Jim Crow laws, redlining, and sundown towns were produced to keep Black Americans intimidated, impoverished, without a voice, and deeply insecure. 

Although many of these practices have been abolished, they still impact us today. Black America has not received the opportunity to heal from this trauma because the focus of our ancestors was on survival and getting ahead within a system that was not created for them. On the other end of the spectrum, we have made much progress within this country, but because we have not healed our emotional scars, we have passed down generational trauma that still plagues us to this day. 

This trauma shows up in our lives today as insecurities, self-sabotage, low self-esteem, and poor relationship management. Many of us are constantly on defense, guarded, and continually passing down toxic behavior that we were forced to embrace during slavery. 

Created by CEO and author of The Black Girl’s Guide to Healing Emotional Wounds, Nijiama Smalls, The Emotional Wellness Hub is the first of its kind. The Emotional Wellness Hub is a virtual space created for Black Americans to heal emotional wounds and develop healthy coping skills. Through curated conversations, virtual support groups, and online courses offered by life coaches and mental health professionals, the focus is to support Black America to heal and thrive emotionally. In addition to emotional wellness, this space will help Black America tackle its relationship with finances, faith, time management, and more importantly, the relationship we have within our families. Visit The Emotional Wellness Hub today.
