Time has flown by so quickly this year and it’s already February aka. Black History Month. Despite the chaos that the world is experiencing, I believe that it is more important than ever to celebrate the stories of black people and our impact on this world. We all know that we have contributed so much and that deserves to be celebrated. But as a womanist, I also am aware of the fact that most of the history that we celebrate is mostly male, cisgender, and straight. In order to correct this, I will be contributing to Black Herstory Month on Medium in an attempt to highlight the amazing Black women who made and are currently making history. My pieces will be released once a week on Saturdays as usual.
Wishing you a safe, healthy, and happy New Year
