Juneteenth

When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid. Audre Lorde

I been ignorant…but I’m studying and learning. And today I am celebrating Black Women who matter – a lot!

Blair Imani is writer, mental health advocate, and historian living at the intersections of Black, Queer, and Muslim identity.

Melissa Viviane Jefferson, known professionally as Lizzo, is an American singer, rapper, songwriter, and flutist.

Alexandra Johnson Boone is Founder of the Women of Color Foundation, dedicated to the education, training and leadership development of women and girls of all colors.

T. Morgan Dixon is Founder & CEO of Girl Trek. In the footsteps of a civil rights legacy, GirlTrek is a national health movement that activates thousands of Black women to be change makers in their lives and communities — through walking.
