Community Healing Network


Vision & Mission

Our mission is to mobilize Black people across the African Diaspora to heal from the trauma caused by centuries of anti-Black racism, to free ourselves of toxic stereotypes, and to reclaim our dignity and humanity as people of African ancestry. Our vision is a world in which all Black people have moved beyond surviving to flourish, and are enjoying life in all its fullness, in body, mind, and spirit. Emotional Emancipation Emotional Emancipation is what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called “psychological freedom.” Marcus Garvey called it “emancipating ourselves from mental slavery.” It means complete freedom from all toxic ideas about the inferiority of Black lives, Black intellect, Black culture, Black values, Black hair, Black skin, and other Black physical features. It is the freedom to see ourselves as beautiful, lovable, intelligent, capable, and worthy; freedom to see ourselves beyond the negative stereotypes that have limited us for centuries; freedom from dehumanization.

Community Healing Community Healing is about our shared responsibility, as Black people, for confronting and working to overcome the centuries-old narratives of White superiority and Black inferiority. It means reveling in the fact that we are as valuable as any other people on the face of the earth, and working to be free of the emotional legacies of enslavement and racism. http://www.shodansecurity.com/new.communityhealingnet.org/vision-mission/
