wellness and rest . . . in the valley
This module is arguably related to our previous discussions on Black Spirituality. We will be talking about rest and wellness--- which certainly has a spiritual component to it, but not necessarily like the organized religion like we studied before.
We are also going to center Black Joy—and joy in resistance--- in our conversations about wellness. This week is named after Megan THEE Stallion’s 2022 second studio album and its accompanying website: https://www.badbitcheshavebaddaystoo.com/ .
Like Megan, we too will curate Black digital spaces connected to wellness in this week of class. Together, we will read an excerpt of a new book by Tricia Hersey, Rest is Resistance: A Manifesto.
