As Black women, our individual and collective needs are especially visible right now and we believe it is important that those needs are part of the conversations of how this virus impacts North Carolinians. We also honor the tradition of Black women making a way out of no way and want to highlight our creative resilience and adaptation as we care for ourselves and others. We see this campaign as an opportunity for us to tell our testimonies of this moment in time.
This is #HerTestimony.
#HerTestimony is a three-part campaign throughout the month of June and July 2020 focused on raising the voice of Black women in the coronavirus pandemic. The three components are: an online survey giving North Carolinian Black women an opportunity to share their stories anonymously, a narrative (storytelling) project, and a guide to help Black women engage storytelling in their own spaces.
