Speaker & Attendee Testimonials
The Existence of the Powerful Black Woman is under attack!
Time for Massive Intentional Movement! Our POWER has been oppressed and demonized and our strength recognized! Embodying strength without any POWER has created the Strong Black Woman Syndrome!
In return, we are surviving and exhausted instead of thriving and full of life. Our connection is fragmented, as each of us strives to rectify our situation. We have created disjointed Sisterhoods.
From Reiki to Jesus, Crystals to oil, prayer to sage, Allah to Ancestors, meditation to affirmations we are separately on a journey of Self-Discovery, Power, and Freedom!
Simultaneously, as we heal our wounds, we want to share the liberation in our spirit w/ the sisters we see still stuck!
Stuck in the pain from Rejection, Abandonment, Miscarriages, Divorce, Domestic Violence, Poverty Mentality, Adoption, Abortion, Rape, Molestation! This list is not exhaustive
The Existence of the Powerful Black Man is also under attack!
We have been manipulated to see our struggles separately. We can no longer make this a black man vs. black woman issue. It is a black family and community issue.
Police brutality is real against both sexes, but disproportionately so with our black men. More of them are in jail. As the prison to pipeline program was created specifically for them.
It is time for Kings & Queens to be in position together. Our men are stuck and suffer from the same pains caused by
Rejection, Abandonment, Miscarriages, Divorce, Domestic Violence, Poverty Mentality, Adoption, Abortion, Rape, Molestation and more!
Unlike women who tend to be more emotionally vocal, it is taboo for our men to open up. But our brothers have said enough is enough and have joined forces with us because...
The Existence of Black People Periodt is under attack!
While they will not kill us all, the agenda for mental, emotional, and spiritual control is alive more than ever! We are worth more to them alive than dead. The only way to release this pain and the mental shackles is to address the trauma individually and collectively!
We have chosen to heal together!!!
We invite you to heal with us!!!
Are you ready to stop pretending to hold it all together!
Protecting those that violated us
Staying in toxic relationships
Medicating w/ caffeine, alcohol, drugs or addictive, unhealthy relationships
Torturing ourselves to serve while ill
Suffering in silence while our offenders roam in peace
Abuse in any form
Pretending we are okay
Serving others and denying ourselves
Passing down generational curses
No Longer Bound by Judgment
In life, we show up w/ just enough strength to get the job done. Those of us who operate in our Power often do so in secret to escape scrutiny.
Our mother’s question our belief in God
Our sisters in Christ Damn us to Hell for our practices
Our partners don't understand us
Some challenge our black card
People question our spirit of forgiveness
We use our power but with a dim light

Rebirth After Financial & Spiritual Trauma
Dr. Kami J. Anderson
Your Linguistic Mama Diva
Relationships rooted in financial trauma can be difficult because survival is at stake. Walking away isn't only uncomfortable, but very scary, especially if children are involved. Strong faith is needed. Learn how reigniting the connection to the Divine will open the windows of blessings. Starting over will be easier than you think.
The Impact of NO Childhood & Premature Adulthood
It is deeper than being a latch-key kid. The increased responsibilities create a fear of expression and an abnormally high level of self-reliance. This can prove to be detrimental in relationships especially marriage. Often we miss the relief that comes from supportive relationships. But of course, we can handle this on our own.
Hurricane Katrina - Trauma from Natural Disaster
Natural Disaster does more than destroy homes and communities. It can impact your faith, money mindset around provision, and overall sense of fear. Something as simple as rain can become a trigger. Our friends, family, churches, community leaders, and government officials may fuel our anger by the way they "don't" respond. Come learn how Nataushia freed herself from 10 years of the trauma she had no idea she was carrying.
Hidden Beauty for Safety
When you are outspoken and helpful as a child you may be taken advantage of or physically harmed. Often many women physically, emotionally, and spiritually hide their beauty to remain unnoticed. Many suffer from the fear that comes from attention. Often it feels safer to hide behind the mask of being a bitch for protection. OH my, the freedom that comes when the real us comes out.
Fatherless - Physically or Emotionally Unavailable
Courageous Accountability & Mastermind Coach
The pain we suffer from an absent father follows us into adulthood and often determines the quality of relationships we end up in. Please know a father can be in the home and his presence still absent.
Judged & Alone
On-Demand Virtual Executive
Walking in faith will require you to make decisions others will not support. It is even more difficult when insults are added. Initially, to deal with this many may become people pleasers. Choosing to walk in your power and awethenticity may create rifts in our relationships. Prayerfully, they will learn and respect you as you stand.
DWB - Driving While Black
It is traumatic to witness police brutality and other racist acts. It is even more painful to experience it. It only intensifies when there is no wrongdoing. Coming to Atlanta to get her MBA almost turned out to be a bad decision. More and more women are victims of violent acts by the police. Yet, her experiences around the globe have allowed her to see the agenda extends beyond the American borders. All of her experiences cause Natajia to fight for true racial equality.
Touched too Soon
It isn't a right of passage for a young boy to experience sexual pleasure. Innocence is precious and should be protected. Learn how brother Curtis was able to heal and forgive after being touched to soon. See how God blessed him to love his way out of the pain.
When Life Is Too Good To Be Ungrateful
Project Manager & Digital Marketing Consultant
The strong ones are always slept on. Check on your strong friend. Those of us who are strong and have become exceptionally successful need even greater attention. Questioning your existence is not about being ungrateful. Sure you may be successful in your career, have great kids, and an excellent husband but what you don't have is time for yourself. When you have been groomed to be the go-to person overwhelm will set in. One day you can go from autopilot to the suicide hotline.
Narcissism and Spousal Sexual Trauma
The Narcissistic Abuse Coach
The pshychological trauma alone from being married to a narcissist is a force to be reckoned with. Many women are violated sexually in their marriage, financially chained, emotionally disturbed, and ultimately are prisoners. Even after breaking free, a physical ailment may manifest. You can be free!
You will be free! You need to know what you are up against.
Culture Shock from Constantly Moving
The Sales Growth Coach
Are you really shy? Perhaps there is a hidden trauma you didn't recognize and it comes from moving. Moving often creates instability and insecurity in young children. Constantly starting over and making new friends is tough enough; racism magnifies it. When you went from knowing everyone to not really being accepted in your neighborhood you may become "Shy". No more being invisible; time for the world to meet you.
Parental Trauma -Learning to Honor Our Child's Story
Creator of SuperWoman StillStanding Events & SWAGU
Most of us learn how to parent on the job. In an effort to do better than our parents, we may be too protective or too lenient. In the end, we learn not to be too hard on ourselves. We learn our children have their own story to tell and all we can do is the same thing as our parents. We do the best we can.
Black Love is Needed in Black Business
The Founder of The Masters Of Business Network & Mastermind Community
No matter the trials with his own community, Bro Bedford has continued to expand a business focused on the betterment of his brothers and sisters. He has looked death in the eye from the hands of his own people. He overcame the fears and insecurities of building a business and now teaches others to create businesses that serve the black community in patience and love!
Neglected Health Will Shut a Beast Down
Tammie T. Polk
Professionally Sassy Business Woman
Often sisters push and push. We believe if we don't do it, it won't get done. Better yet, it won't be right. We fight to keep deadlines so others are not disappointed if we don't finish. When we don't make time for something as simple as rest, it will make us make time for it. You can look forward to getting help and rest or look up at the ceiling.
Sexual Trauma Often Leads to Spousal Abuse
Founder & Executive Director of My Sister’s Keepers of Atlanta
When you are sexually violated and those closest to you do nothing to stop it, the first declaration may sound like this, "I WILL BE NOTHING LIKE THEM!" Dawn learned soon she carried the dysfunctions from her abuser and those that enabled him into adulthood. She went from being abused to used to sexually. Unfortunately, sexual trauma will lead to poor relationships and ultimately spousal abuse.
Undiagnosed Mental Illness and Child Abuse
Healing & Recovery Accountability Expert
We have finally realized we can't ignore mental illness in the black community anymore. Many of us were raised by parents who were mentally unstable. The abuse suffered can go from the extreme of physical to even sexual abuse. On top of that add foster care and rape. Some of us are blessed to be sane. If you were raised by undiagnosed mentally ill parents you know this trauma is real, but do you know there is true healing and life after?
Facing Our Racial Stories/Ancestral Trauma
Storytelling Energy Healer
It is one thing to deal with the racist experiences of your own and another to come into the realization of it in your ancestors. It isn't as easy as calling it black or white. We are living in a multi-cultural world. People are in interracial relationships. Mixed blood is in our veins rather it be by choice or rape. Healing the racial stories will require one to face ancestral trauma.
Confidence & Trauma Coach
We really need to reevaluate our criticism in society. Is that child really a fast-tail heifer? Perhaps, she is a baby girl who was touched way too soon. Being pregnant in middle school should have been a red flag for people to come save Amber. Instead, it was open season to verbally and emotionally attack her. What is done in the dark will come to light and black people have to stop saying that is some white folk shit. We must protect our young.
When the Giving Doesn't Stop
Over giving and the concept of being a natural nurturer has been engrained in the minds of women all around the world. Regardless of skin color, we share many of the same fears and desires around child care. For white women, we call them panic attacks, for sisters we will say we broke down. In the end, we both end up with the same problem. We need to set boundaries and protect our energy. Over giving can lead to traumatic experiences.
Multiple Marriages & Multiple Forms of Trauma
Is it three times is a charm or three strikes you're out. Well in Charmaine's case it is neither. Many women deal with embarrassment after multiple marriage failures. We live in a society where we are taught God hates divorce. Our culture often says to stay together for the kids. Unfortunately, many of us have no idea who we are before we begin co-creating with another person. Well, she isn't out for the count but very patient through her healing before she brings another man into her life.
The Curse of External Validation
Certified Life/Confidence Coach
While we are busy saying shake the haters off and Ima do me. Most of us really do care what others think. While opinions can be helpful, there is a time when they are not needed. Issues with weight or questioning your intellectual capacity can cause you to need permission from others. When decisions can't be made or you don't walk in your truth out of fear of what others are thinking, you are dealing with the curse of external validation.
Abundant Opportunities After Trauma
Lynn Meyer, MA, LPC
When you are still crushed spiritually by your trauma you may miss opportunities. Some of you will not see them and pass them up. Once you realize what you missed, you may be a little hard on yourself. Don't give up; God knows you are still going through your process to become the woman you were created to be. The blessings will flood in as you embrace your journey.
Elevation and the Returning Triggers
Digital Marketing Strategist
I know you want to just get over it, but that isn't how it works. While your trauma won't have the same impact after you have healed, it will come back to haunt you. Each level of elevation is a confrontation of an old version of you meeting the new. The same thoughts and insecurities will pop up. However, you will be better armed to fight. Don't think you are crazy because you should have gotten over it. Come learn how to have an empowered mindset and realize you are moving up a level.
Addiction and its Effects on the Entire Family
Judeline Galek, MBA
Family Recovery Support Coach
We know the one dealing with substance abuse needs help but what about the rest of the family. Many of us have had parents, children or close friends wrestle with addiction. Most facilities don't offer long-term help for the family. We may be taught about the phases of recovery, but what about our trauma. It takes a lot of love, patience, and knowledge to endure the journey, especially if you are led to believe you have had any impact on the person's addiction or impeded the recovery progress.
Miscarriage & Missed Love
In a critical moment in her pregnancy, Imani had to choose to make a choice and seize the one thing she desired. So often, in our time of need, we fear being a burden. In reality, we should be grateful that it is an opportunity to receive love at the highest level. It is abundant and unconditional.
Military PTSD from Sexual Trauma
Virtual Business Manager
It is one thing to be discriminated against even when you sign up to protect your country. Imagine putting your life on the line, being sexually violated, and realizing you are part of a system that isn't for you. The first reason is because you are a woman and the second because you are black. For three decades Anitra tried to live and hide her trauma. Now she exists to help other women evolve from survivors to thrivors!
When a Mother Buries Her Child
The Natural Order is desired. Parents don't expect to outlive their children. Losing a child is hard enough, but it is magnified when it happens in chaotic and tragic circumstances. Not knowing how to deal with the anxiety will affect how we parent and can destroy a good marriage. You can question what could you have done differently. Blaming yourself won't help. Simply put, a parent expects their children to bury them, not the other way around.
Success Doesn’t Negate Suicidal Thoughts
We can gain courage and move on from unhealthy relationships. But the younger you are when you entered it, the more difficult it can be to reprogram the mental and emotional trauma. While she continued to move forward, negative spirits were looming in the background to take her out. That on top of the fact everything seemed to be going wrong at the same time caused this Queen to question the need for her existence.
Claire Kashukwe Limbwambwa, MA
Claire Kashukwe Limbwambwa, MA
We must be careful how we speak to our child and the resentment we harbor as a parent. When a child grows up to believe they are the source of adult problems they typically fall into two equally opposing categories: people-pleasing and self-rejection. There is a natural yearning to be accepted, coupled with the fear of rejection, so they inflict it upon themselves.
The Voices - Removing the Impact
A R Smith
I know what the doctors told you but what did God say? What does your heart believe? So often we listen to the physicians and do whatever they say instead of taking charge of our health and well being. Dealing with the medical industry can cause mental anxiety and have physical repercussions.
When Abuse is Normalized Since Childhood
The things we see, the expression our mothers and grandmothers spoke, even many of the songs we played normalized abuse. Often we are taught with much detail how to be a good wife and men are given the mere lesson to provide. Many of us must go on a journey and fight to get to real normalcy and recognize our true power without a man.
Life After Loss a Widow's Story
What will it look like when you lose the love of your life. Men tend to hold things in and hold things down. Unfortunately, one day an illness can go from minor irritation to the cause of death. When your husband was your rock and encourager it can be hard to keep on. Death is certain but when it comes out of nowhere the effects may create shock and truama simultaneously. Carole is a young widow who had to learn to live again after one moment of taking her husband to the emergency room to a couple of days passing and he was gone.
Poor Health is a Threat to Your Family Legacy
Frederick E. Geiger
Part of his wake up call was losing his mother and father to poor health. On one hand, it caused tremendous pain. On the other, it provoked a spirit of responsibility. Taking over your health requires commitment and discipline. Fear of not being able to leave a legacy can cause setbacks or flair ups of old behaviors.
Perpetual Obstacles When Pushing Toward Your Purpose
Rynette Upson Bush
The Purpose Pusher
How much can a sister take! When your life seems like a series of unfortunate events, moving past trauma can wipe you out. The typical issues in life were popping up for Rynette, but in addition, they were coming back to back and in the midst of a pandemic. It will take more than your strength to prevail. Let's look at healing while trauma is simulataneously being compiled.
The Eulogy – Death of the Imposter
Auguste is far from an imposter. Work with her in any capacity and you will see she is the epitome of AWETHENTICITY through and through. Black women come to her seeking the secrets to her openness and UNAPOLEGECTIC FREEDOM, something that seems far off to many black women. For the finale learn what she does and see into the window of her mentality. Trauma fueled her and she refused to be an imposter. Get ready to attend the funeral of the imposter.
