Honey Shine’s mission is to encourage the balance of mind, body and soul in girls and young women by providing nurturing experiences that enlighten their paths and empower their future.

During their chat on Wednesday, Mourning stated there is an attack on our young women of color and we are passing it off as entertainment. She went on to explain that it is not ok for our women and girls to act the same way we see them portrayed in the media. Listen to their entire conversation below.
