The Choice of Black America: To Survive or Thrive-From Victim to Victor

Black Americans have a history of leadership and moral fortitude achieved in the face of adversity. We have gone through, grown through and risen above with dignity and grace. From slavery to Jim Crow to civil rights to mass incarceration, to predatory lending we have survived and even thrived. We have done so in large part, sustained by the ability to tap our spirituality (regardless of our particular religion), in ways that are real and practical. We continue to admire and be energized by Mandela, Malcolm, Martin and Maya for doing the same yet too many of us have sidelined or abandoned what has historically been our power and strength. Our community has been sapped by the forces of racism and stress from without and the consequent internalized oppression from within. Many of us have consciously or unconsciously chosen materialistic solutions expecting a sense of relief, satisfaction and power. The results have been limited at best and at worst, devastating to our mental, physical and spiritual health and to our children and our communities

I believe that resilience is in our character and that together we can learn to thrive and not just survive the impact and history of racism as well as everyday life stressors. We can move from victim to victory! As Langston Hughes so candidly reminds us in his “Mother to Son” poem “So boy, don’t you turn back. Don’t you set down on the steps’ Cause you finds it’s kinder hard. Don’t you fall now—For I’se still goin’, honey, I’se still climbin’, And life for me ain’t been no crystal stair.”

My talks, workshops, and coaching sessions are designed to walk alongside participants in rediscovering, uncovering and or discovering our spiritual strengths. I call it the “practicality of spirituality.” I believe we build by walking with one another and not ahead or behind each other. So let us learn or relearn to walk together to victory.
