The beloved poet Audre Lorde said, "Silence will not protect you." What a powerful statement. Many people believe if they don't talk about the bad or the painful in their lives, then all will be well. What a big mistake because silence shelters shame. "For Colored Girls" the movie challenges us to confront the real-life issues that keep us imprisoned to shame, to self-hatred, to poor choices, and to abusive relationships. Join Dr. Michelle and other sisters as they discuss the movie "For Colored Girls" and how it can be used to empower women to live their best lives. I want to hear from you, even if you haven't seen the movie, for I'm sure you have seen some of the issues or maybe even experienced them yourself. Break the silence tonight and get ready for your bedtime blessing Sunday night at 9:30 p.m. Listen online or on the phone (347) 857-3974. No matter where you live, everyone is welcome to call in to ASK DR. MICHELLE a question or to share a comment.
