Black vaginas don't get enough love either. Black women have been told since the days of European explorers invading Africa for slave labor, that our vaginas were odd, animal-like, inferior, an uncontrollable and oversexed part, a place to breed deviance, a place to abuse, a part that we don't own.

Black vaginas have a story. Black vaginas are amazing.
