Hustle Culture is Not for Black People
Dear Black Woman, Black People have been hustling since before they were even seen as people. We, our parents, our grandparents and great-grandparents have been hustling working three plus jobs and somehow still ended up broke. The game is not in our favor and hustle culture is not build for us. They have hijacked it, glamorized it and made it appealing  and trendy when we should be doing everything in our power to honor our ancestors by resting and staring something NEW. Let me know what you think.

Black Woman Rests. | Black Woman, Rest.
Black Woman, it's okay to rest. Without guilt, stress, pressure, REST. Heart Disease is the number one killer of Women in America. It disproportionately affects African American Women. What can we learn from this statistic? That we need to incorporate more REST, PLAY, and LEISURE in our everyday lives. We are stressed out. We are dying from that stress. Hustle culture will use you until you die. Let's unlearn these harmful behaviors and vow to LIVE more, better and longer. --------------- Find out more at https://www.aleciarenecephoto.com/thefreeblackwoman Follow Me At: https://www.aleciarenece.com IG: Alecia Renece Email: alecia.renece@gmail.com

Welcome to "The Free Black Woman"
Welcome to the first episode of The Free Black Woman.  What started out as a photo project quickly turned into a project about uplifting, celebrating and encouraging black women to tell and own their stories. I began The Free Black Woman with one goal in mind; to show the varying beauty and depth of The Black Woman. I was so sick and tired of hearing people label us so simply; "The Angry Black Woman." That label, those four words are not loving or kind. They say that we can only be one thing, when the world hands us so many chips to shoulder. They are meant to wrap us up and shrink us into something small  and simple enough for society to digest. Making ourselves one dimensional and holding back all of ourselves, our beauty, our anger and joy to be deemed  "acceptable" should not the job nor should it be a goal of the Black Woman has to strive for. Unfortunately, this is the reality that some Black Woman face. The Black Woman is multi-faceted. Every time you think you have her figured out, she surprises you. We come in so many different molds and makes, with baggage and beliefs, beauty and insecurities. Each Black Woman carries with her, her own story and struggle. I wanted to create a safe space-- our own safe space-- for black women to share their stories, frustrations and hopes candidly and honestly. I wanted to get the authentic stories and quotes from women who live in this culture of code-switching and shrinking, breaking and becoming, and I want to bring those stories, experiences and beautiful faces to light... to you to change the narrative. Black Women are multi-faceted and we are beautiful. We are varying in every way and each way is something to celebrate. So get ready to hear the stories and see the many beautiful faces of The Free Black Woman. --------------- Find out more at https://www.aleciarenecephoto.com/thefreeblackwoman Follow Me At:  https://www.aleciarenece.com IG: Alecia Renece  Email: alecia.renece@gmail.com
