I don’t have words worthy of this representation. I would just hope that the world can hear this truth and in the USA we can unpack the lies that these heynis injustices have ended. . Yes, I am a white female that has had this ill gotten privilege and lived my own gender inequity. Yet, I have not lived the dehumanizing abuse of Black Lived in America!! This was an incredible and timely documents. We are moving far to slow to repair these wrongs.
