What is "Walk A Day In My Culture" about?

Walk A Day In My Culture,” is a newsletter that I write monthly, including my perspective as a black woman first and then as a clinician second. By doing this, I am provide people who are not African-American with a different way of looking at the issues my community faces. For those who are African-American, they are provided with validation regarding the things they are experiencing, giving them a sense that they are not alone. But, regardless of a person’s race, my newsletter is bound to be helpful. It includes some practical things that are useful and supportive in the day to day interactions others have with clients, colleagues, or just people in general. Also included with the monthly newsletter subscription are my “Friday's Cultural Tips,” which are brief tips (or thoughts to meditate on) that I give my readers to simply help them think more deeply about culture. These weekly tips are not as detailed as my newsletters, and are more so little cultural nuggets to chew on throughout the week. I’m looking forward to you signing up under the "newsletter subscriptions" tab and beginning to let your cultural antennas be raised.
