    Historically, the voices of Black storytellers have been excluded from mainstream media. Thankfully, that has started to change.

For others, however, the holiday season can prove to be a very difficult time. According to a survey by the American Psychological Association (APA), 38% of people said their stress level increases during the holidays. The National Alliance on Mental Illness states that 64% of people with diagnosed mental illness say the holidays make their conditions worse.
