Black History Month

I can't believe I forgot about this blog until now. This one is entirely dedicated to the history of black women.

For Harriet is dedicated to Harriet Tubman and is meant to be a space for black women to speak about their lives and experiences.

For your Black History Month, read about historical black female figures from Bee Quammie in her piece 5 Black Women Historical Figures from Around the World You Should Know. I myself didn't know about any of these women, and each of them are fucking amazing.

God damnit, U.S. education system. You are so worthless. These women are so much more interesting than 10 out of 10 of the fucking white dudes I had to learn about over and over. Paul Revere rode on a horse and yelled something, only he didn't. Wow, that deserves space in my head over Queen Nanny of the Maroons.
