Hi! For I wrote about Black farmland loss and how two families with roots in Halifax, Virginia are fighting to retain ownership of their property. I've been working on this since May and am so happy it's out in the world 😊

So, here it is. If you follow me on here, if you know me in real life, then you know I'm obsessed with the year 1619 & how the start of slavery in America has shaped everything in our society. So, in Feb. I pitched to a project to examine, in this 400th year, the legacy.

The Trump admin thinks the gov’t can afford $2 trillion in tax cuts for wealthy ppl but can’t afford to help poor families eat. What good is “low unemployment” for folks who already work 2 or 3 jobs & still can’t feed their families?

On this day in 1910, a black-owned magazine reported the murder of a black taxi driver by a white man who refused to pay his fare. The white man faced no punishment. To overcome racial inequality, we must confront our history. Share this
