ADHD is the new Black is a funny (I hope) Show for Women of Color battling or managing ADHD made by a Woman of Color managing her ADHD. (most days)
You are a remarkable black or brown woman. You are intelligent and funny, and you know exactly what to do. So why can’t you just… do it? (Procrastination!!! Ahhhh)
You’re smart and competent so why don’t you know how to find your keys? (Awful memory. Am I developing early Alzheimers? )
It’s not your ADHD Brain Fuc#ing, Sister.

Only a handful of people are talking about it. We need your support and help!
This website is for information about the disorder.
C’mon Stella, get your groove on.
Unlimitless potential is ours. If only we could remember where our keys are.
