This week, I watched a young lady get knocked to the floor with a skateboard. This skateboard was in the hands of a young Black man. She lied unconscious as him and his friends walked away laughing.
This week, I mourned the death of Oluwatoyin Salau, a young Black woman who literally put her life on the line as she protested injustices faced by police in America.
This week I tried my best to avoid a video on the internet of a Black woman being thrown into a dumpster.
This week was heavy…
And that’s the thing, heavy is not just this week.
Heavy is the weight of the struggles that Black Women deal with because no one has our back.
