THE STORY:

Black Womens Blueprint, Inc. wrote -

On September 30, 2017, Black women and comrades will unite and lock arms and march unapologetically at the center of the "March for Racial Justice" as our very own MARCH FOR BLACK WOMEN. To put it simply: Black women's issues are racial justice issues. Black lived-experiences related to gender, sexuality, and gender identity are racial justice issues. We give ourselves permission to believe in the power of our demands and the strength of our convictions to take back what's already ours. As diverse communities of Black women, we have always faced innumerable and unspeakable brutalities. We cannot allow isolationist impulses dictate our movement strategy given the political urgency of now. We cannot allow the travesties that have disregarded our existence continue to flourish while we wither away with resentment and stew in our own rage. This has been our inherited tradition for centuries, practiced in diverse ways around the world, both in peaceful protest and in righteous anger in the face of indignation and in the face of dehumanization. Our March within a March is not only a mass mobilization centered on Black women, but a reminder to every single one of us that so long as Black women are killed by the cops; so long as Black women are taken or go missing; so long as we are raped by friends or by strangers or by nationally renown predators -- there can be NO JUSTICE.
