She is a graduate of Howard University, Yale Dvinity School, and the Yale Institute of Sacred Music, Worship, and the Arts. C.

A woman shouldn’t feel uncomfortable about her body, especially when it comes to her menstrual cycle and discussing it openly with others. Unfortunately, talking about periods for women in general is still so taboo as society tells women that it is “unacceptable” or “dirty.” When you think about this through the lens of intersectionality and layer ethnicity – particularly African Americans – on top of that, it may be more difficult to engage in open discussion.
