Black Women Build in an Era of Danger


As we enter traditional halls of power in increasing numbers, black women in Donald Trump’s America have been put on notice: Be quiet, do not challenge or question authority, and don’t dare to speak up and defend yourself against an injustice.

The notice is especially clear for black women who have stepped into positions of power. Just ask U.S. Representatives Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Maxine Waters of California, or journalist April Ryan. If you speak out strongly against the Trump administration’s racist policies, question White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders’ truthfulness or wear a Muslim hijab as you work in Congress, expect to receive attacks.
