Light A Candle is an initiative created by Tamika VanTifflin, former Miss Illinois

United States and Executive Director of THE BLACK ECOSYSTEM, and Candice Cunningham. The goal is to shine a light on mental health in the Black Community.  Our focus is on Emotional Intelligence – getting everyone to be aware of their emotions and also being able to express and control your emotions. This is the foundation of being able to heal, grow, have peaceful and fruitful relationships. Basically emotional intelligence is the key to success in all aspects of life and we keep overlooking it in the Black Community. I want to change that NOW.
