Editor's Letter: There Is No Joy Being The Only Black Woman In The Room

Conversations with black women always have the potential to be life changing. Every black woman’s experience is unique due varying circumstances, but there is always this invisible thread that pulls us together - no matter the different challenges we face in our individual lives. 

Last year, I ran a writing workshop and Danielle Dash and Victoria Sanusi (two of the most talented and selfless women I know). Danielle said something that is important to always remember - “you shouldn’t want to be the only black woman in the room.” Although it is something I know, it made me check myself and made me think, am I as a black woman, creating opportunities for other black women to succeed?
