About Fabiana / by Evey Sekajipo

After reading some articles about black women for a course in college, my eyes were opened to something that I had never fully considered: I am a black women.  It seemed like with this realization came a burden.  A burden that I carry regardless of choice. The first question I asked myself was what does it mean, for me specifically,  to be a black women? The second question was what do I do with what I know? 

Working with young black girls in Mama Africana made sense.  I joined MA to be the mentor I wish I had growing up.  I want unity in sharing their burden.
