ISSUE 02: BODY
The second issue of THE FRUIT is all about celebrating the Black woman’s body and the stories that are born from it.
Black women's bodies are sexualized very early; often during adolescence. As such, young Black girls are not able to come of age authentically and freely. These young women are often robbed of their innocence and not given the opportunity to experience the full course of life’s natural trajectory.
We are asking our community of storytellers to reflect on a moment in time when they have felt the most connected or disconnected to their bodies. With Issue 02, we are introducing a conversation around the Black womens’ passage to womanhood through experiences with their bodies and body positivity and shaming experiences.
Various prompt questions will be released soon on social to help guide your reflection. In the meantime, feel free to join the convo by submitting your Body story below.
