Many black women have endured physical, sexual and emotional abuse, domestic violence, pregnancy-related trauma, loss and abandonment. Rather than admitting their pain --- seen as a sign of weakness --- black women mask their troubles behind the façade of being “strong” and ever capable of handling everything for themselves and those around them. NOBODY KNOWS THE TROUBLE I HAVE SEEN helps women understand the high price they pay for wearing a mask of strength and provides a framework for healing.
