How old were you when you learned that there is white feminism and there is Black feminism?
For me it was around 3 years ago when Jasmen Rogers-Shaw gave us a History lesson. She explained how the women's suffrage movement excluded African American women in the fight for equal rights. It made me realize how much was left out of my History classes.
She is running for Florida State Legislature, so if you are in Broward, please vote for her! And it is her birthday today! Happy Birthday, Jasmen and thank you for being an awesome leader in the community. You have taught us so much.
Thank you, Jasmen!
