A recent television series special entitled, “Surviving R Kelly” sparked a wave of unrest and social media discussion-- especially in Black communities. The alleged atrocities suffered at the hands of this famous Black entertainer were more than plausible, and viewers were outraged by both the nature and depth of the abuse that they saw, as well as by the length of time these alleged abuses had been allowed to continue unchallenged and unpunished even by U.S. courts.The writers of this curriculum have come together to represent a segment of the Black community. We have come together to offer what we can—as our gift—to aide in the protection, education and empowering of Black females. We are academic administrators. We are teachers and professors. We are attorneys, clergy and heads of social justice and Black women’s organizations. We are psychologists, church workers, and women involved in many forms of social service. And it is our determination to offer up the knowledge that we have struggled to attain as one action that can serve to address the needs of Black females.We are united in our love and concern for the welfare of our sisters. We are the voices of Black women from the multi-denominational Black Church…and we are listening, hearing, angry and determined.
