As part of its post-election coverage, Hello Beautiful‘s Kellee Terrell interviewed 17 Black women about their reflections and outlook on the new President-elect, including communications specialist and Human Impact Solutions Co-Founder/CEO Janet Dickerson.
Here’s an excerpt:
The first thing I’m trying to do is be intentional about practicing self-care and self-preservation. Even now, at just one-years-old, my daughter is paying attention and looking to me for cues on how to behave and react to the world around her. Also, as she gets older I must be truthful with her about the times she’s coming up in, while at the same time still be able to protect her innocence and not allow the effects of “Trump’s America” rob her of her optimism and sense that she can do anything she puts her mind to.”
