Every being seeks to have a life filled with well being, free of fear, and resonate with a sense of belonging and self worth.  Inherent within the lived experience of People of Color and Black Women in particular, is a pervasive conditioning towards dehumanization that impedes this personal fulfillment.  Self identity is essential in healing the wounds of oppression.  During this talk we will dive into the internal healing that takes place when Black Women reconnect with their essential benevolence through radical self identification and identify the internal barriers to liberation that arise when definitions of self are not fully embodied with the ethics of one's innate goodness.  The paradox of identity lies in the question of how can internal vitality strengthen and flourish in ways that do not construct masks and barriers that block personal and collective liberation.
