Dear <<First Name>>

Black History Month is traditionally a time to celebrate the often overlooked accomplishments and contributions of Black people throughout history, and sometimes through the lens of Black pain. Black history is history to be acknowledged and celebrated all year.

So this year, we’re taking a different approach to Black History Month. 

As we gathered images of our own team and others for our new website I was struck by how much joy was represented but sometimes gets overlooked in the midst of surviving a global pandemic and racial reckoning.

We are more than survivors who are strong and resilient. We are also soft and vulnerable which can get lost at times because of how others treat us and how we treat ourselves. We love and we are loved.

We’re often so busy and doing what needs to be done that we don’t cultivate the softer parts of ourselves that need nurturing. Whether at work or at home, consider one small change that you can make to bring more joy into your day.

So for this Black History Month, we’re shining the light inward and reflecting on the joy and love that we have in our lives and for ourselves. Take a moment and imagine dedicating 30 minutes to doing something that brings you great joy.

What would you do?

The Ladipo Group is excited to host a virtual group series for women of color, Mind Your Own Body: Redefining Beauty & Body Image

Get ready to look in a mirror and embrace that beautiful YOU! Mind Your Own Body: Redefining Beauty & Body Image is a weekly group meeting, set to help women of color understand and address problematic beliefs about their bodies. Participants will explore various influences on their body image perception, and learn how to cultivate a more accepting and healthy view of their bodies and their function.


Guidelines for Virtual Group Series

• Find a quiet space with few distractions (e.g. a room, car, porch)

• Use headphones to reduce background noise

• Turn off phone and computer notifications for the next hour

• Close other tabs on your computer

• Keep an open mind and be willing to try new things

• Have video on so that the group can see each other
