This week, as most weeks, I’ve been thinking a lot about health. The following are links that I’ve come across speaking about black/Caribbean/African diasporic communities and various kinds of health.
A simply written article on the Root, written by poet and founder of The Siwe Project, Bassey Ikpi about the important of conversations about mental health in black communities.
I thought “Caribbean” and “Raw Food” were terms that would never go together outside of a salad side, but this site has some interesting recipes for (what looks like) non bland raw food dishes. As someone who did a raw diet for 3 weeks and struggled through drinking blended lettuce and tomatoes, this is definitely inspiring.
So they don’t explicitly speak about health, but they are a company that offers African/Caribbean dance classes for all ages and levels in the Toronto area – definitely making physical health fun for communities that might be missing home in the dead of winter.
So, what’s on your health radar these days?
