Listening Fully to the Voices of Black Women

The Need for Change Bulldozed a Road Down the Center of My Mind.

- Dr. Maya Angelou

 

This week, my voice isn't the most informed voice to share stories of the racial injustices that continue to oppress and harm Black people in the United States. I have much to learn about where I can be of authentic help, and I extend a deep Thank You to the authors of the stories below for sharing their wisdom, for sharing their pain, for sharing their humanness. 

Here are a few powerful and insightful articles written by Black Women that I read this week that helped me to understand just a little more deeply, how tightly racism is woven into everyday life. 

What I Said When My White Friend Asked for My Black Opinion on White Privilege,
Lori Lakin Hutcherson

How Black Women Describe Navigating Race and Gender in the Workplace,
Maura Cheeks

(1981) AUDRE LORDE, “THE USES OF ANGER: WOMEN RESPONDING TO RACISM”
Contributed by BlackPast.org 

When Feminism is White Supremacy in Heels
Rachel Cargle

 

Take care of each other, friends. And listen with the intention of helping to create far better outcomes for BIPOC.
