The Strong Black Woman Schema or Super Woman narrative is essentially a societal view that Black Women are resilient, strong, and therefore can take on anything in life. However, while some may view this narrative as something positive or even empowering, there are levels to this ideology. This episode explains how the idea of resilience can cause others to view Black Women as superhuman and therefore lacking the need for support on an individual and even systemic level.
