Superwoman: The Curse of the Black Woman

Co-host Nia will be back next month, but tonight on the 'Drop, I welcome special guests Taaj Middleton and Leilani Miller. Mrs. Miller is the Executive Director of Millennia Ministries, a non-profit dedicated to helping women & children transition to stable lives.

We will explore the ideal of the "strong Black woman" or the "Superwoman Syndrome". It is as much as a blessing, as a curse and we'll tackle the issues faced by Black women surrounding self-esteem and bearing too much burden.

Listen in and hear as I explore this important topic with our guests.

Redefining our relationship with the homeless

Last year, Portland City Council approved a pilot "overnight sleeping" program that would permit churches and other non-profits to make their parking lots available to people currently living in their cars. The measure, loosed based on a similar program in Eugene, was intended to offer refuge for those on the brink while more permanent support was found. When Sellwood's Moreland Presbyterian Church announced earlier this spring their intent to be the first church to carry out the program - in their case for a single woman living in her car - a vocal minority raised a sufficient ruckus that the church delayed implementation of its plan.
