Dr. Griffin’s Story

Tunya Griffin is a Biblical Welcome, activist, and unwavering revolutionary. In 2020, All AllAboutTheTea.com conducted an exclusive interview with Dr.Griffin because her story ended up on Real Housewives of Potomac” Season 5 reunion (Monique Samuels). “It was one of themost embarrassing moments of my life. I worked extremely hard to make sure my reputation remained intact. In fact, I waited 10 years from the dates of (1996 – 2005), but in 2006,I decided to take the plunge to enter the dating scene (2006 – 2009). That went left.

In 2008, I learned, my then associate pastor boyfriend of 3yrs, secretly ran off, impregnated his ex, and scurried to the Bellagio to get hitched. (2009 – 2011) I took a break, but in 2011, I took the dating plunge again, only to find my dating life ended up on the afformentioned. My life was torn to pieces, my character was destroyed, employers, churches, friends and clergy leaders distance themselves and my and reputation was in question, publicly on display. I was willing to walk the public shame similarly to the Walk of Atonement in the Games of Thrones: A walk of atonement is a public ritual of punishment and penance in the Faith of the Seven. It demands a confessed sinner to walk a certain distance stripped of all clothing, exposed to the eyes and jeers of the population

What I knew is if i wanted to make it through this moment in my life then it would take bravery to publicly take my walk of atonement. 

Walking my walk of atonement and Speaking Truth to power the blessing and curse

I garnered my strength from the MeTooMovement

The #MeToo movement, which in 2017 launched as a hashtag before morphing into a full-blown revolution, caused the downfall of powerful men stretching from Hollywood and entertainment to politics, the media, sports and beyond. It has empowered women to speak up about inappropriate behavior everywhere from the workplace to the halls of power.

But long before there was #MeToo, there was Anita Hill, the law professor who in 1991 accused her boss, now-Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, of sexual harassment. Although revealing an alleged pattern of sexual misconduct led to a sharp rise in sexual-harassment claims by woman across the country, her brave testimony in the U.S. Senate was met with skepticism by both lawmakers and the American public. She was publicly called someone “with an ax to grind” who was attempting to “bring down” a powerful man. At the time, nearly twice as many Americans said they believed then-nominee Thomas’s account over hers.

But in the wake of #MeToo, women still face an uphill battle when accusing powerful men of wrongdoing. Since then, Dr. Tunya continued to walk side by side with women in the church. And out that face similar issues. After spending time traveling and lecturing, Dr. Griffin has turned her lemons into lemonades. Herr dissertation is published, Overcoming barriers to leadership equality.
