Let the Black Women Say Ase’

Join the Aya Collective for the launch of our first anthology, Let the Black Women Say Ase’.

Asé is a word of affirmation, of agreement, that the storytellers in this anthology give to each other. Rather than solely looking for that affirmation from the outside world, the storytellers gather together to share and bear witness to the life unfolding before them. In this anthology, full of writing from our Black sisters, we are taught to embrace the fullness and diversity of our spirituality. We are encouraged in our mothering, whether we are natural mothers or not. We are given the courage to embrace life and love—courage when these things are really good, and courage to still lean in when it hurts. We are brave enough to cherish our strength and not use our strength as an excuse to hide from our vulnerabilities. We invite you, reader, yes you, to join us as we tell these stories with ourselves, understanding that our asé’ transcends our individual experiences and is shared by Black people all around the world.

I wear my faith like a royal garment, I treasure it, I respect it, I live and respond out of it, calling others to enter into a lifestyle of walking in the garden, in the cool of the day...with their creator. I beg for change; I crave harmony and unity between you and I. Like the rivers crave water, it is so much a part of my being, so much a part of me!
