The purpose of the Emotional Emancipation Circles is to have a safe space to share truths of how persons of African-descent have internalized the lie of Black inferiority and/or dealt with expressions of others’ and society’s belief in Black inferiority. The manifestation of this belief can appear in various ways as health science graduate and medical students, including feeling like an imposter in comparison to your peers, trying to disprove the belief that Black people are unintelligent and lazy, holding a negative body image, incessant comparison to non-Black peers, feeling as if you have to represent your racial group at all times, and many more experiences that will be identified and explored within the circle. EECs are a collaboration between the Community Healing Network and the Association of Black Psychologists
