“As black women in this century living in the United States, our time has come!

While we have always been strong in the midst of adversity, receiving accolades for heroism earned throughout history, demonstrated through the lives of Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Fannie Lou Hammer, Ella Baker, Rosa Parks, Shirley Chisholm, and so many more unnamed black women, we are no longer invisible.

Kamala Harris, being named the Vice Presidential running mate of presidential nominee Joe Biden on the Democratic ticket, is not just symbolic of our struggle for equality but represents authentic change.  It says we are still here, and now you see us. Black Women Power!”
