So fucking over the moon to have met & introduce @MeTooMVMT founder @TaranaBurke tonight for her @WUD_DLS lecture at @UWMadison. My voice broke as I read my intro bc of how powerful & important Ms. Burke’s work is to me & the world.
Tonight Ms. Burke told us about her origins working with black girl survivors. She reminded us that the work has ALWAYS about survivors, healing & ending sexual violence NOT merely about “bringing down powerful men”
Her talk was moving. She encouraged all @UWMadison students to claim this space. She said this is YOUR campus. You DESERVE to be safe here & free from sexual & racial violence. Until we are all safe here the university is not living up to its mission.

Thread for my white #feminist friends (of all genders)

Content: Sexual violence, racism

There is a racial divide on social media regarding #SurvivingRKelly
Most black folks I know have posted about the docuseries in the last few days (thankfully black people in my networks are expressing support of the victims of sexual abuse & coercion though their posts suggest to me that is not the case with their entire friends network)
In contrast, nearly all white folks I know are not even acknowledging the docuseries, the #RKelly conversation, nothing. This divide/contrast reminds me that white people are not required to know what’s happening to and among black folks.
