Many Black women have a little girl inside of them that carries pain from their mother's DNA from generation to generation. After 40 years of reflection, I recognized that the pattern of my wounds was grounded in white supremacy and patriarchy and co-signed by religion. On Healing Black Girl Pain is my story of a woman, broken at birth and healing the little girl inside by overcoming society's expectations and discovering her power within.

My story describes experiences in white schools and Black churches and lifts the latter's monopoly of liberation, especially for Black women. My concern is not to pain pants on women in the church but to question this religion which seems to enslave and free in tandem. It also carries the torch of Black foremothers whose spirits gave strength to today's Black girls. Araminta Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Fannie Lou Hamer, Ella Baker, Shirley Chisholm, Assata Shakur, Angela Davis, and so many others continued the Underground Railroad to freedom, but it is up to us to heal ourselves.
