5 Quotes for Us by Us

With Black history Month behind and Women’s History Month ahead, for Black Women, we find ourselves in the often difficult but always magical position of being both. And while it should be easy to see ourselves represented in each of these spaces, we know all too well, how that often turns out:

“All the Women are White and all the Blacks are Men. But some of us are brave.” ~ Akasha (Gloria T.) Hull, Patricia Bell-Scott, Barbara Smith.

This and every month, we are here to celebrate, empower, and uplift brave black women. Here are a few powerful quotes for us, by us to celebrate US.

Confirmation that Your Voice Matters
“The voice of a Black Woman should always be HERSELF…No edits – no erasure – no pressure – no expectations – no additions – no intruders.” ~ Malebo Sephodi, Activist & Writer

A Call to Remember Your Magic
“Black Girl Magic is a rallying call of recognition. Embedded in the everyday is a magnificence that is so easy to miss because we’re so mired in the struggle in the struggle and what society says we are.” ~ Ava Duvernay, Film Director, Screenwriter, & Film Producer

An Invitation to Unapologetic Self Love
“As a black woman, the decision to love yourself just as you are is a radical act. And I’m as radical as they come.” Bethanee Epifani J. Bryant, Author & Motivational Speaker

A Reminder of Your Greatness
“Black women were created of brown sugar and warm honey. The sweetest thing to bless the earth. Be wary of anyone who tells you otherwise.” ~ Alexandra Elle, Author & Wellness Consultant

A Note of Encouragement
“Be not discouraged black women of the world, but push forward, regardless of the lack of appreciation shown you.” ~ Amy Jacques Garvey, Journalist & Activist
