For Sullivan, Tales of Heaux isn’t just about sexual liberation, but self-love, a concept she’s still learning about herself. During her Soul Train Awards acceptance speech, she admitted that being on stage with so many eyes on her was a bit painful due to her own insecurities. She said she wrote Tales of Heaux encouraging black women to love each other and come forward and get on that stage was her practice of what she preached.
âI made a promise to myself not to hide anymore,â she said. âUsually, if I wasn’t feeling my best, I probably wouldn’t have come, but I don’t want to do it anymore. I wrote this project so that women love each other, whatever the stage of their life. You have to love yourself, especially because society doesn’t want us, especially black women, to love anything about ourselves.
