Welcome to Conversations with My Sisters! “Conversations with My Sisters” grew out of a series of discussions I began having with my sister and my sister girlfriends over 3 years ago. It just seemed like every time we talked whether on the phone or in person, the conversation would inevitably turn to the dilemmas of being single, successful, women of color. On the heels of such fiery and passionate conversations amongst my sisters, I decided to explore seriously and honestly the reason as to why it seems like so many educated, professional women of color (including ourselves) are single. These “kitchen table” conversations are the seeds of what has now become my dissertation project. Over the last year and a half, I have been chatting with women of all colors, hues, and backgrounds informally and formally about dating, love, and their experiences in romantic relationships. This blog is intended to be a continuation of these conversations–a place to share and discuss ideas, thoughts, and comments regarding the challenges, choices, and opportunities that educated, professional black and brown women face in their romantic relationships. As a woman of color pursuing her PhD and currently single, I am confident that I am in good company. So, to all my sisters out there who are scholars, intellectuals, educators, lawyers, teachers, artists, musicians, writers, poets, actors, doctors, activists, professors, scientists, etc… I invite you to join the conversation! Of course men, are always welcome too.
