Welcome to Blackology 101… an interactive, educational, healing space for those of us enjoying Black life in all its complexity and resisting oppression in all its forms. Blackology 101 is intended to encourage critical thinking, holistic living, and psychological freedom for a new generation of Black people. Limitation is the essence of oppression…self-definition is the therapy we need. We invite you to check back regularly for posts and podcasts, and to share your comments and thoughts about anything you see here.
“The proper starting point for the crucial debate about the prospects for black America is an examination of the nihilism that increasingly pervades black communities…it is the lived experience of coping with a life of horrifying meaninglessness, hopelessness, and (most important) lovelessness…Life without meaning, hope, and love breeds a cold-hearted, mean-spirited outlook that destroys both the individual and others.” ~Dr. Cornel West
“Psychology means understanding what our soul grapples with and making sure that our soul goes on grappling with it instead of pretending that all is well and all will be well because all isn’t well and all won’t be well.” ~Carol Bly
