Black History, Black Mental Health: Trauma. Resilience. Triumph.

“Pray about it” She had heard that phrase countless times Jesus Christ, God, and the Holy Spirit combined They were preached as a panacea.

And when her world was falling down She sought out therapy Against the wishes of her family It had taught her what the church could not,

Not how to be saved but how to save herself.
