Mother's Day weekend kicked off in the most beautiful way on Friday when two icons — activist Angela Davis and writer Nikki Giovanni — appeared in their first-ever live conversation. 

The two legends joined GirlTrek's FB Live and spoke at length about various topics focused on the healing and liberation of Black women, sharing important survival and self-care secrets to help guide women during challenging times. You can watch it below: 


GirlTrek is a national health movement that activates thousands of Black women to be change-makers in their lives and communities through walking. The program was the kickstart of the organization's #DaughterOf campaign, which encourages women to celebrate the Black women, mothers and foremothers in their lineage and the lessons they passed down.

During the historic candid conversation between the two women, which has amassed more than 600K views so far, the legends spoke on everything including self-care, beauty, politics, writing, friendship and liberation. The conversation, which was hosted by GirlTrek co-founders Vanessa Garrison and Morgan Dixon, was surely a memorable one, as people shared the wealth of knowledge that was given across social media.

Here are some of the most memorable gems from the conversation.
