Whether you're the CEO, manager, entrepreneur and you can even be the First Lady--as Black Women business owners and leaders, most of us have dealt with navigating the Angry Black Woman perception and its impact on our progress. This came alive on: #QueenSugar on OWN. a recent episode showed Charlie, an accomplished and poised business woman/CEO, enduring a meeting with people who clearly disrespected and devalued her. At home she voiced what many of us have thought in our careers, "I didn't say anything because I didn't want to be the Angry Black Woman, ". Then she did what many of us do--she forged her own path.
Have you dealt with the "Angry Black Woman" perception?
Have you ever wanted to speak up but kept silent or softened it extremely so that you wouldn't be stereotyped?
Have you thrown caution to the wind and said what you had to say?
What did you do?
