Tonya GJ Prince is the Founder/Editor of WESurviveAbuse.com:
I am a Survivor of child rape.
I am a Woman of Color.
I am an American Black Woman.
In any society where it is considered “impolite” to mention the fact that someone raped you, healing can be nearly impossible.
Add to that, rape is extremely sensitive in the Black culture for a multitude of valid reasons. Problems like anxiety, depression, anger, and grief are a standard part of Surviving but aren’t often freely spoken of by people of faith.
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.
Today, a few members of my family courageously speak about these things.
But, make no mistake, we are a work in progress.
Not everyone chooses to heal and grow authentically.
The road remains treacherous, desolate, and continues to expose us to more oppression.
Nevertheless, the lessons and giant faith that you gain along the journey can add healing and wisdom.
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.
