“Conversations on Caregiving”: Three frank, videotaped discussions of some of the key issues associated with caring for our loved ones. The Conversations provide information, resources and sage advice that will help African Americans take better care of their loved ones and themselves.
Dear Sisters and Brother Morris:
It is with great pleasure that I provide you with links to the “Conversations on Caregiving” videos that so many of you participated in at the Salamander Resort & Spa in September. What a wonderful exchange of information, personal stories and advice we had! With these videos, we have an opportunity to provide information and resources to African-American families well beyond those that attended the “Because We Care™” forums. This is largely due to your time, enthusiasm and input and that of the representatives some of you sent in your stead.
As many of you are aware, November is National Family Caregivers Month. The “Conversations on Caregiving” are available on The Black Women’s Agenda website (www.bwa-inc.org) and possibly as a link on the AARP site. BWA is also delighted to make the videos available to you, our National Collaborating Organizations, to post on your organizations’ website. Directions for downloading the videos can be found below as well as the links to each conversation. I suggest posting the discussion on “The Health Impact of Caregiving” first as it includes an introduction to the “Conversations.”

In this season of Thanksgiving let us embrace the words of renowned poet Maya Angelou-
“Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer. And let faith be the bridge you build to overcome evil and welcome good.”
Thanksgiving is a time when we gather around the table with family, friends, and loved ones to celebrate our blessings of the past year. It is our time to put aside our differences, give thanks for our blessings, and express our gratitude.
As we are move into the last weeks of 2023, we have witnessed and experienced some of the most challenging times that many of us have ever seen. Amid these times, we have been brought closer together not because of our similarities but because of our differences.
During our 2019 Symposium, Our WA President Gwainevere Catchings Hess said,

The Black Women’s Agenda, Inc. (BWA) today announced its enthusiastic support for President Joseph Biden’s nomination of Ketanji Brown Jackson to the United States Supreme Court. “While there are many individuals, including numerous Black women, who are exceptionally qualified to assume a seat on the nation’s highest court, Ketanji Brown Jackson comes to this moment with impeccable credentials,” said Gwainevere Catchings Hess, BWA’s National President.
