“You don’t make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas” — Shirley Chisholm, The first black woman elected to the US Congress.
This year, the theme for Black History Month is “African Americans in Times of War”. That’s fitting because all-of-us are currently fighting for our democracy, which Trump is waging a daily war on. Black women are on the front lines of our battles, which is why all-of-us must begin this week by recognizing and honoring them.
