Yesterday, my sistalove Toni Blackman (www.toniblackman.com) sent me a Facebook link for filmmaker and activist Stacey Muhammad’s new documentary Out of Our Right Minds – Trauma, Depression and the Black Woman. Click here to watch the trailer on Facebook and Vimeo: Facebook – http://www.facebook.com//video/video.php?comments=&v=193978939222 and Vimeo – http://www.vimeo.com/8067851.
Stacey Muhammad, filmmaker and activist from New Orleans
As I watched the film’s trailer and listened to Toni’s words, my spirit reminded me of what it felt like to stand in the slave cells located at Elmina Slave Castle in Cape Coast, Ghana and Goree Island in Senegal. I remembered the many conversations I have had with my parents and friends about PTSS – Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome. Muhammad’s film explores PTSS and its impact on the lives of Black women.

It is quick and easy. So give what you can. I gave a gift of $20.
Enjoy your day and be grateful for all you are and have!
Peace, Creativity, Compassion, Gratitude, and Generosity,
