Black Healers Collective

A Community of Healers

Under the guidance of Rebeccah Bennett, Brittini Gray and Aminah Tolbert, the Black Healers Collective leads InPower Institute’s healing programs and initiatives in community settings. As changemakers, healers, educators, ministers, therapists, chaplains, health practitioners, culture bearers and artists, we work to advance the healing and wholeness of African diaspora people specifically, though not exclusively. Our commitment to the well-being of Black people, families and communities extends to all of humanity and life on Earth, yet is rooted in the deep and abiding love we have for ourselves and our culture. This love, and our recognition of our profound interdependence, bind us together across diverse backgrounds, traditions and healing arts, and compel us to align our efforts to heal ourselves and serve others.


As a collective, we use the wisdom, skills and resources of our communities to spread healing practices and programs both to those in our midst who are struggling to survive as well as those among us who are learning how to thrive.  We engage in healing efforts that support Black people in: 1) re-membering ourselves – repairing that which feels fragmented and broken within our households, families and neighborhoods; 2) expressing our truths; 3) exercising our power and creativity; and 4) seeding healed futures that affirm and uplift Black lives.  As part of our work we
