Y’all. Y’all. Y’all. I’m so excited for Telling Stories next show, Ride or Die: Stories About Friendship happening Wednesday, March 31, at 7pm (EST)! Like sooo excited.
Black women are my jam. My jelly. And my bread.
They have saved my life over and over again.
Black women have been there for me when no one else was. They’ve had my front, back, and side.
It has been Black women who have cheered me on, encouraged me, comforted me, and told me I could do anything!
Black women are the original girlfriends.
Toni Morrison once said:
“Black women have always been friends. I mean, if you didn’t have each other you had nothing,”
And don’t I know it, honey!
In honor of Women’s History Month, Ride or Die, will celebrate Black women and our friendships. Our girlfriends. Our homegirls. Our BFFs. Our tight cliques. Our ride or dies. The ones who love us, who challenge us, who push us to be better, who might do a quick late night drive-by past that nig’s house right quick (y’all know what I’m talking about), who let us grow and expand, who watch our kids, who we travel and brunch with, who root for us, the ones who gon ride with us to the end.
But make no mistake, this show is not going to just be sunshine and rainbows. This show is for grown women cause we are gonna be talkin about some grown women shit. Like how friendships can be complicated. How friends can break our hearts. And friends can leave us. So get two bottles of wine. Ya heard me?
The show is free, but we are accepting donations. The donations support the show, our storytellers and a portion will be donated to Essie Justice Group. Essie Justice Group is a non-profit organization of women with incarcerated loved ones taking on the rampant injustices created by mass incarceration. You can make a donation here.

And then join us tomorrow for some dynamic stories by some dynamic Black women talking about the ride that is friendship.
