Uncaping, Unmasking, Unhiding the Strong Black Superwoman

Welcome to day one  of 30 Days of Uncaping, Unmasking, and Unhiding the Strong Black Superwoman.

Over the next 30 days we’re going to peel back the layers of four popular television characters [Olivia Pope, Annalise Keating, Cookie Lyon, and Mary Jane Paul], who in their individual roles embody the stereotypical Strong Black Superwoman. 

First up is OLIVIA POPE.  In this episode we start peeling back the layers to determine what cape and mask she wears. 

What’s inside:

  • An overview of why we’re doing this work
  • What Olivia Pope’s Superwoman cape and mask look like
  • How her mask and cape show up in her relationships
  • How her mask and cape show up in the lives of most Black women
  • Steps Black women can take to start the journey to healing from the Strong Black Superwoman Syndrome

Tune in now as we peel back the first layer of Superwoman Olivia Pope. When you’re finish head over to the Shades of Strong Facebook Community HERE and share your reflections and aha moments with us.
