Black Women for Wellness 2014 Conference: Get Smart, Before You Get Sexy (Los Angeles, CA)

16 Jul

Each year Black Women for Wellness (BWW) holds an annual conference to provide an open forum and space to highlight the health status of black women and girls. The complex lives of black women has been written about by the likes of Maya Angelou to Melissa Harris Perry.  Black women’s presence, space, bodies have been analyzed and critiqued and although no experience is the same, there is a certain amount of shifting that Black women do that affects the type of interactions and experiences we have with others in our society.  With constantly shifting to the ideals of society, black women’s health is being compromised both physically and emotionally.  Given the disportionately high health issues black women face, and the urgency to address black women’s health, BWW is focusing this year’s  conference on transforming silence into action, framed in a discussion around reproductive and sexual health, rights and justice.
