Unlocking Black Women and Grief with Marisa Renee Lee

For those who do not know, this podcast is a love letter to my mother, Alice Faye Taylor. When this episode drops, it will be one year and one day since my mother has passed. Being a private person, it was hard to share my grief about her passing. However, I also think it is important. Black women are told to always be strong. Generationally, we have been taught to perform even when we are experiencing profound turmoil. As I honor my mother in this conversation, I invite my friend Beverly Oden to speak with me about her experiences with grief and loss. You may recognize Beverly’s voice as she has been on the podcast two other times sharing her wisdom. If you haven’t had an opportunity to listen, you can find them here: Unlocking Your Authentic Voice with Beverly Oden and Unlocking Sisterhood & Entrepreneurship with Beverly Oden and Mia Jackson .
I am also inviting another person who has helped me through this experience, Marisa Renee Lee. After losing her mother, a cousin and a much wanted pregnancy, Marisa was in the throws of grief. With her catastrophic loses, Marisa chose to channel her experiences into a book. In Grief is Love Marisa reveals that healing does not mean moving on after losing a loved one. Healing means learning to acknowledge and create space for your grief. Please take a moment to honor Marisa’s mother, Lisa.
Take Care. Pray Every day.
