Retiring the Strong Black Woman Title

Many are talking about how problematic it is how it may be time to retire the Strong Black Woman label.

Tarij P. Henson in particular has been very vocal about her discomfort with the label Strong Black Woman.

In an interview with Essence she talked in detail about how “many of us [Black women] proudly take on the “strong Black woman” identity not realizing that we’re sending the message that we can bear the weight of the world on our shoulders without breaking a sweat.

She goes on to talk about how the term was originally used to empower us but is now being used as a weapon to dehumanize us, ignore our pain and belittle our tears.

After hearing all of that, is it time to retire the Strong Black Woman title?
