Tea for the Soul 

The Coalition for Black Health and Wellness (CBHW) will host Tea for the Soul: An African American Tea Party to uplift and encourage Black women in the Harambee spirit.

Tea for the Soul was created to help Black women identify their untapped gifts and positive attributes. In addition to assisting them to overcome any mental health challenges they might be experiencing, Tea for the Soul will allow women to unwind and express themselves in a safe space. Tea for the Soul is designed to help those attending step back from their busy lives and slow down as they learn new ways to cope with stress.

A safe space where Black women can explore self-care, mental health, wellness, and healing

How We Differ From Other Organizations

Empower You Edutainment philosophy is that art is a form of healing. Our motto, "Each one teach one," an African proverb that emphasizes that no one is alone; everyone will embark on their journey together without failure because they will inspire and encourage each other along the way. Our goal is to provide wellness by creating a sense of self through advocacy, training, and Edutainment. Our organization offers a year-round after school performing arts program that provides healing energy and emotional release to youth and young adults' most vulnerable population by offering  free classes in the performing arts.
