Even more disturbing than the slap and the profanities hurled at Chris Rock by Will Smith in front of the entire world is the fact that so many people are framing the debacle within the context of #protectblackwomen.

Here are a few organizations that will help Black men and women heal:
https://borislhensonfoundation.org/ - Founded by actress Taraji P. Henson in honor of her father to help de-stigmatize mental health issues.
https://therapyforblackgirls.com/ - an online space dedicated to encouraging the mental wellness of Black women and girls.
