The Black Mental Health Alliance sponsors Emotional Emancipation Circle 21217 at Matthew A. Henson Elementary School

Sat, Sept. 1, 2018

10:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT

EMOTIONAL EMANCIPATION CIRCLES℠ or Emotional Emancipation (EE) Circles℠ are self-help support groups in which we, Black people, work together to overcome, heal from, and overturn the root causes of the devaluing of Black lives.

“We are going to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery because whilst others might free the body, none but ourselves can free the mind.” — Marcus Garvey

In Emotional Emancipation (EE) Circles, we come together to:

 Share our stories and feelings, always respecting the humanity and dignity of each EE Circle member

 Deepen our understanding of the impact of historical forces on our emotional lives, our relationships, and the well-being of our communities

 Free our minds and spirits from the lies and heal from the historical and continuing trauma of racism

 Tell ourselves a new, liberating, and empowering story about who we are as people of African ancestry

 Revitalize ourselves and our relationships with each other

 Learn and practice essential emotional wellness skills to help us be at our very best-–as individuals and as a people

 Develop strategies to address the root causes once and for all.
