Thanks for the mention Sharon! I feel so humbled. Again, your message here is brilliantly articulated. I have had a number of these gaslighting episodes - and the hidden message behind some of these is: how dare me - a black woman - complain? Some people want to control us, control what we say. It's as though freedom of expressions exists for them and not for us. We need to keep speaking, we should never stop.
