It's Time: Elevating the Voices of Black Women

We need to listen to Black women. For centuries, Black women’s voices have gone unheard, even though they’ve been at the forefront of a variety of movements in order to enact change on both sides of their identities. Feminist issues have centered around the oppression of white women, whereas the issues in the black community have primarily been centered around the disenfranchisement of Black males. It is necessary that we create a unified action that centers black women’s lived experiences through creating spaces, listening intensively and sharing their stories to the masses.
