A Magical Herstory


Women are the primary storytellers and culture keepers for African families across the Diaspora. Th is is made apparent through the literature, food, music; it is all encompassing through religion. If it weren’t for the women in the African Diaspora, many of our stories would never be told. If it weren’t for the mothers in our communities, many of our traditions would have been forgotten. If it weren’t for the sheroes in our collective lineage, our gods would have never been raised again and our powerful and strong sensual female deities like Osun, Yemoja and Oya would have been all but forgotten.
