This week we’re peeling back the layers of another “Black Superwoman” in our 30 Days to Uncaping, Unmasking, and Unhiding series.
To some, Cookie Lyon of the hit show Empire, may be the epitome of the angry Black woman because she’s loud, rude, and obnoxious…
…but we LOVE her and we happen to think that she’s the epitome of the GREATNESS — the SHO NUFNESS that lies inside of all Black women.
So, in today’s episode we take a peek at the personality of Cookie Lyon and why she’s so easily labeled as an angry Black woman.
We also take a look at how her take no prisoners attitude is directly related to her lived experiences, because the truth is Cookie Lyon is not an angry Black woman, she’s a Black woman who has experienced a tremendous amount of pain, and that’s what we’ll be talking about this week. So be sure to tune in and if you find yourself in any of these episodes and are ready to start your journey to healing , please join us in the Sista Circle of Healing HERE.
We also love to have you join us in in the Shades of Strong Facebook Community where you can connect with other Black women have open and honest discussions about things that concern us individually and collectively. This is safe space where we can lean on each other in times of trouble and unrest, and dance with each other in times of celebration.
