We are Sahra and Ttobie the founders of August Inc. here in Sydney, Australia.
We created August Inc. to bring Black Women together in cohesive spaces where we can spend time with one another and share experiences without the scrutiny of mainstream society. We run regular events, and manage a Black Mothers Group, Woke and Weary, a book club and Common Folx, a new way to date.
For us self-care is about finding a space to belong. It is about being true to yourself and breathing in all that is authentically you. As Black Women we are the same but different and we believe that leaning on one another and coming together helps us mentally and physically to face a world that was not necessarily built for us.
We aim to create events that ensure that black women feel safe and secure within themselves and the space they take up in Australia.
