Black women are taking over and it’s beautiful to watch. Historically, Black women have been the backbone of our communities. When someone is needed to fill the void, Black women have done so. Women are always on the frontlines, in every situation, from activism to family life — they do it all.
We thought it high time during this International Women’s Month to highlight and pay tribute to a few Black women we think you should have your eye on.
Take a look!
