What is Safe Black Space?


Creating opportunities for Black people to heal and thrive.

Safe Black Space is the umbrella under which various services are offered to address people of African ancestry’s individual and community reactions to cultural and racial trauma. Currently, it has two main components: Safe Black Space Community Healing Circles and Emotional Emancipation Circles (EECs℠). It will expand to include Safe Ally Spaces and Safe Black Green Spaces: Grandmas Backyard. Detailed explanations of each component are described later and an infographic is provided which shows an overview of Safe Black Space.

Being a participant of a Safe Black Space Community Healing Circle gave me the opportunity to discuss my experiences with prejudice, discrimination and racism with others who had shared experiences. After the circle, I felt relieved, connected and supported.
