I've noticed Black folks on social media praising Black women activists for what they're doing for Black men in the #BlackLivesMatter Movement. I thought BLM was for Black men AND women??? There's a saying about all feminist issues are about about white women and all Black issues are about Black men. Which leaves out Black women and our struggles.
Today marks the 1-year anniversary of the death of my sorority sister Sandra Bland. She shouldn't have been arrested in the first place. In this video I discuss why we can't forget Black women who have been victims of police violence.
Rest in Peace Sandra Bland and the many other victims whose names we know and don't know.
