The Black Out crew is reclaiming our time (and our energy, effort, and focus)! Emotional labor is the draining practice of suppressing one's own feelings and exerting energy for the purpose of addressing other people's feelings, making other people comfortable, or living up to social expectations. That's gonna be a 'nah' for us. This week we're talking about ways to focus on our own emotional needs, set boundaries, and prioritize consent and reciprocity in our relationships and interactions. It all starts with self-love, self-worth, and acknowledging your own power.
Happy Black Futures Month y'all!!! After a whole year the Black Out is officially back and starting 2019 with some big questions. This week we sit with the fact that as Black womxn we are varied and complex with many different and intersecting identities, values, and ways of being. Inspired by the City Girls & Cardi B Twerk video, we're wondering if it's possible for Black womxn to experience liberation in all of our complexity? Calling in the spirits of abundance, solitude, gangsta, and desire, the Black Out is tryna figure out how to be our whole, full selves in these 2019 streets.

The Call In is more than how we start. The Call In is to center and align ourselves with the energies and guides that we want to honor and invite into our experiences. The Black Out crew uses THIS call in to set intentions on where we want to go as we get ready to embrace another year of vibing with our listeners…
