For centuries, Black women, femmes, and women-aligned folks have been pushed to the margins. Even social justice movements marginalized the voices of Black women in order to center the dominant group- the Civil Rights Movement centered the experience of Black men and the Women’s Rights Movement centered the experience of middle-class white women.
22 years after the Million Man March and on the 20th anniversary of the Million Women March, the Florida March for Black Women will center the stories, struggles, and resilience of Black women, while connecting our common issues and showcasing our collective South Florida power.
Join the Miami Workers Center and several other community organizations as we center the experiences of Trans Black women, Black women struggling to pay rent, Black girls who are “pretty for a dark-skinned girl,” Black women who are under appreciated and underpaid, undocumented immigrant Black women living in fear of deportation, Black women with children in failing schools, Black women unable to bear children, Black women with visible and invisible disabilities, Black women survivors of violence, Black women who do not have time to cry, Black women who make a way out of no way… all Black women.
