Recently, some women have stepped up to militate against this social ill. In this post, we highlight these women who have stepped up to fight against racism in America.
Over the years, as people join the black community in protesting the extrajudicial killings of Ahmad Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tatiana Jefferson, and the most recent George Floyd, the solidarity has shone the necessary light on the severe racial inequality that continues to plague America.
Black activists, influencers, educators, and writers have taken to social media to educate anyone willing to invest their time. These women have been committed to researching, designing, and sharing practical ways for a fundamental change to be made.
