Black Women’s Lives Matter

Although the mantra ‘Black Lives Matter’ was developed by black women, I often worry that in the collective consciousness it carries with it an implicit masculine association, one that renders subordinate or even invisible the very real suffering of black women, one that assigns to these women a role of supporter and soother and without enough space or liberty to express and advocate for their own.
