"We ain't crazy. We're just living in a crazy system."
"The past is the present and it will be the future, if we do not disrupt it."
"We are about dismantling and destroying the mindset that has dehumanized Black People."
"It is time to put healing at the top of the global African agenda, so that we can breathe and get into rhythm of who we are."
"I've never been so proud to be a Black person as I am right now."
"The EE Circle is really the first time we are really confronting our situation at the deepest level as Black people."
N ew Initiative: #SpeakYourTruthThursdays
#SpeakYourTruthThursdays is a new CHN social media initiative that went into effect on Thursday, November 21, 2019. The goal: to engage the global Black community in creating a new vision of ourselves fully grounded in the truth of our humanity. We want to build a collection of positive and empowering declarations and statements about Black humanity to share with the Diaspora through CHN’s social media posts, programs, banners, and tee-shirts, etc.

The concept is simple : every Thursday will be dedicated to naming truths about Black humanity on CHN’s social media platforms . For example “We are a beautiful people.” “We are multi-faceted human beings.” “We are caring.” “We are creating a new world for our children.” 

We invite you to post as often as you would like, and please invite your family and friends to join the conversation.

Criteria:
  1. Share on Thursdays
  2. Truth Statements must be positive 
  3. Truth Statement must be Black- African-centered
  4. Truth Statements can be quotes or original (please identify the author in either case)
  5. If you are so moved, please share a short explanation of your Truth statement, and do feel free to engage (respectfully of course) with the statements contributed by others. 
  6. By submitting your statement, you consent to CHN’s right to share it as CHN sees fit so long as that use is to advance the aims of the global grassroots movement for emotional emancipation. 
  7. CHN reserves the right to remove posts that are at odds with the aims of this initiative and the mission and vision of CHN.

These criteria are subject to change at CHN's discretion.
