The historical black church has picked up this mantel of patriarchy while mimicking white dominant hegemony to create its own sexual politics. Often women have not been empowered enough to explore the options of healthy sexual relationships for themselves outside of a religious prescription. Women continue to have men dictate how and what their bodies should produce. These men represent the outside forces who demand control over black women’s body to carry and birth the vision of male leaders. Ultimately this sessions seeks to empower women to embrace their sexuality in ways that honor them and resist ways others use tradition to put their bodies under subjection for exploitation.
