I’ll be honest, Black women are not the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of Texas. But that just shows my ignorance and means I’ve seen far to many movies about cowboys.
Houston has long been a hot spot for us and this weekend is no exception.
According to their site, “the March for Black Women Houston is a celebration of the power, resilience, strength, and beauty that is Black Women. This year’s March for Black Women Houston is dedicated to our girls. This is the year of Black Girl Magic!” Amen.
Jessica Byrd, a powerhouse in the Black progressive movement and former deputy campaign manager for the Stacey Abrams campaign for Georgia, will be in the house!
In case you need even more encouragement to attend, know this. Texas is shaping up to be a critical battleground for the 2020 election.
Go Black Women! Let’s celebrate each other and turn Texas blue! Learn more here.
