Black History Month: Uplifting Black Women’s voices

Today, I am lifting up Lynae Vanee who does videos every Friday afternoon on TikTok. I have been following Lynae for many months, and I find her advocacy deeply compelling. In today’s video, Lynae is asking us, particularly white people, to recognize that Black History as it is consumed through media (film, TV, etc) is much more than Black trauma. She warns us to remember that when we consume media only focusing violence against Black bodies, we become desensitized to the current violence on Black people today. Please hear her words below. Rewatch if you can…she crams her 3 minute videos full of important information!


And here it is: Welcome to The Drive-In. 🍿🎞️🥤 On todays close-up let’s set it off with my boy @Kendrick38 🎬 Keep the #BlackTrauma films this year please including the real life series being created every time a police officer fails to serve and protect when dealing with Black Lives. Instead, let’s celebrate the films that allow us to feel and be seen. How we fight black apathy is by introducing black empathy and killing the single story narrative. Also, click the link in my bio to sign up for Patreon so you can tune into the full drop on #TheLetOut this Sunday at 11:30 am pst | 2:30 pm est

I have made a donation to Lynae here: I encourage you to do the same if you find her work meaningful and worthwhile. We have many Black women doing emotional and educational labor…they deserve to be compensated for the work they are doing.
