Every once in a while I’m going to be posting Brown Girl Bloggers to a list of…well you get the idea. Our first is Sober Brown Girls, which is a great blog for those who are looking for support while being women of color.
Sobriety is not something that a lot of women of color discuss, and when they do it becomes an act of revolution, an act of desire to change your life so that you can help others. Too many times women of color are ignored in the conversation around sobriety and now at long last there’s a blog that answers the question: What happens when Brown girls get sober?

I’m a wife, mother, and proud sober black woman. When I went sober I didn’t feel seen or represented. I knew there were more women out there going through the same thing I was. I want black and brown women to know they’re not alone on this journey. I’m continually inspired by the strength and tenacity of women of color and I recognize representation matters.|
