More than ten years ago, Sharon Ross left her city life in Houston.
She thought the city was too much for her and it wasn’t preparing her for what’s to come.
She believes when it comes to surviving natural disasters, minority communities are the most vulnerable.
But Sharon, also known as ‘the Afrovivalist,’ wants to change that: creating a grassroots community of “preppers,” preparing for the worst.
“I always think how am I going to survive next if something happens,” said Ross.
ABC13’s Chauncy Glover traveled almost 2,000 miles to the backwoods and snowy mountains outside Portland, Oregon, in the middle of the forest to check out what she’s doing.
“We aren’t prepared. I’m just preparing because I feel it deep in my soul and I get my visions from God. He keeps telling me to prepare.”
Be it a natural disaster, a takedown of our entire electrical grid, the apocalypse, or simply if everything stops, the “Afrovivalist” is preparing for the worst. She calls her way of life Afrovivalism.
