March For Black Women Rallied Through Denver As African American’s Take A National Stance
Over one hundred women gathered together at the steps of the State Capital during the “March for Black Women Denver: Not Forgotten” a rally that took place on the last, chilly weekend of September at several different locations across the country — including Washington D.C. “It is an exclusive space for black women,” said Kinyata Fulton, a local activist and one of the organizers of the event in Denver. Even so, the mothers of biracial children along with other women from various ethnic backgrounds stood in solidarity to offer their strength and support. The rally is part of a national movement intended to create a space to heal and to celebrate the authenticity of being a minority. The event further stands as means to speak out against discrimination, prejudice and violence against African-American women in the United States.
