Over the past several weeks, Black women across North Carolina have shared with us their stories and experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. In interviews with these dynamic Black women, we documented how they are adapting (or not) in the wake of this pandemic. We want to use these stories of Black women’s creative resilience, adaptation and pursuit of joy, to position us for resources to support individuals and Black communities in North Carolina. Throughout our website and in the coming weeks, you will hear more from their perspectives on needs, wants, and hopes during this crisis. We hope that this narrative project resonates with you – that you receive a word reminding you that as Black women, we are on this journey together.
