Priscilla Agyeman MPH, like all of us, saw the rise of the instagram Baddie, but she wanted to challenge the notion that Baddies are effortless and carefree. Especially because Black women are so constantly showing up for others and doing invisible labor without acknowledging its wear and tear on their emotional health, Priscilla created Saddie Baddies.
Saddie Baddies is a platform that facilitates conversations about mental and emotional health for Black women. Priscilla provides information from her thorough research of credible sources to help saddie baddies make sure that inner health is as stunning as the outer appearance. On this episode:
- The importance of creating a space where Black women don’t have to defend their existence
- What can go in your self care toolkit
- The importance of feeling your feelings without qualifying or invalidating your emotions
- Double consciousness of being first generation American
- Performative allyship and the importance of doing the work
