International Women’s Day: What Does it Mean to Be a Black Woman Today?

Thursday 17 March

Join us for the first Highgate Black Women’s Wellness Group meeting on the 17th of March 2022 to discuss what it means to be a black woman in Britain today.


The event will include a talk by Maya Vaughan, a relationship coach skilled in conflict resolution. Here, we will discuss racial trauma: what it means, what it does, and how we can collectively heal as black women.

Highgate Black Women’s Wellness Group is a collective of black women with an interest in health and well-being. We promote radical self care for black women through talking therapies, activities, meditation and cultivating a safe space to express emotions away from an often hostile white gaze.

The first series of events will involve six sessions, every Thursday at 6-8pm. Although there is a rough outline of events — including discussions and activities centring health, arts, racism, relationships and activism — the sessions are also a space for black and black heritage women to collaborate, share expertise and experience and build connections. Keep an eye on our Eventbrite page for further event details and to register your participation!

This is a child-friendly space and women with childcaring responsibilities are encouraged to attend. This is an event for black and black heritage women.
