Black history Month: uplifting black women’s voices

Day 2

Today, I am highlighting Malynda Hale @malyndahaleofficial. In her short TikTok, she reminds us of the white supremacist origins of policing in the United States. Please listen to her voice.

Malynda gives us a profound reminder of why teaching history in our schools is so important. History teaches us, especially those of us who are white, that these white supremacist systems are deeply intertwined with our national identity and in most cases, are operating the way they were intended. That is why some activists are calling for us to stop trying to “make the system” work…they already are working! These activitists remind us that we may have to dismantle, unlearn, and recreate truly just systems to see true equity.

Please remember to get your facts about Black History Month from Black people. Center Black voices, especially Black women. Donate to these creators or to a cause they care about. They are doing emotional labor and deserve to be compensated for their labor. Today I donated $25 to Religious Action for Reproductive Choice in Malynda’s name.

Be well,
