Does domestic violence aide in the break down of the black community? Could ending the abuse of women be a key element in helping to "elevate the race"? How many women have had to face the horror of domestic violence? How many of us have had to flee with our children and continue to live in fear years after escaping our abusers? And how many of us have found ourselves living in situations that do not allow us the space, the strength or the time to nurture our children? Domestic violence does not merely hurt the women who abusers attack. It leaves lasting scars that transcend time. Children of abuse grow up to either repeat the cycle as an abuser or often times, they become the abused. What we must understand if we are to advance as a people, is that our thinking about women must be changed. That includes women themselves. We must abandon the notion that being a woman, a wife, a sister, a daughter or a mother, is equivalent to suffering, undo sacrifice, and back breaking service. Join Sankofa's Daughters as we discuss this important topic with San.D's own,Joyce M. Brown. Joyce has been an advocate against domestic violence for over thirty years and is also an abuse survivor. She has seen first hand the devastating effects that this issue has had on families in general and black families in particular. Don't miss this show. It's just that important.
