This is the first "Tell Us How You See It" questions we asked in our Autumn 2009 Issue "WISDOM REVOLUTION: Still In Balance". Your answers - unless you state that you do not want them shared in the magazine - will appear in the next, Winter 2009-10, issue.
So build with us...
1. What is a Black Woman's responsibility to her Black man?
I'll state my understanding (which won't be published since I'm a staff writer as it is), and it's based on my responsibility to MY Black man as I know he wants it to be, as is inherent in me as a woman, and as I choose them based on my interests and abilities. To be respectful, supportive - and by that I mean it's often falls on the woman to take action (wisdom) to manifest - or help manifest - his ideas, make and keep a peaceful and nurturing home environment, to raise our children in accord with his/our teachings and ideals, to carry myself - and partake in actions - that command respect abroad, to be compromising, to tell him what I need (rather than rely on him to guess), to choose my words carefully, and work cooperatively to maintain our relationship and kingdom.
