Tonya GJ Prince is the Founder/Editor of WESurviveAbuse.com:
The facts are these:
I am a Survivor of child rape at the hands of multiple folks my family trusted….and even loved.
I am an American Black Woman.
Rape is extremely sensitive in the Black culture for a multitude of valid reasons.
Rape, anxiety, depression, anger, and grief aren’t problems that Black women are “supposed” to deal with.
Rape, anxiety, depression, anger, and grief aren’t problems that Black women are allowed to deal with.
Our family is in the process of healing.
Every single day is a boot camp level challenge.
Today, a few members of my family courageously speak about these “things”.
But, make no mistake, we are a work in progress.
No matter which way we go, the road remains treacherous & desolate.
Even as we heal, we continue to encounter more oppression.
Nevertheless, the lessons and giant faith that you gain along the journey are absolutely worth it.
Throughout the globe, in every nation, WE are Survivors of violence, rape, and abuse.
We are every color, race, gender, and ethnicity.
Even so, for the most part, we are silenced and uncounted.
WESurviveAbuse.com was started to keep us all from remaining unstoried. Our testimonies, lessons, and stories ought to be shared with the world. This is THAT platform.
