18 African Feminists We Love and Celebrate

What is African Feminism? Many feminists from around the world have contested the idea of whether modern conceptions of feminism are African or un-African. Indeed, feminism has existed in Africa since the times of Queen Nzinga of what is now Mozambique and Yaa Asantewaa of Ghana.

These women have inspired contemporary African feminists, who have contributed significantly to feminism in various ways—whether it be through art, music, writing, policy. They have been committed to bringing the voices of African women into the spaces that they work within, and they are indeed change-makers—not only on the African continent, but also throughout the African Diaspora.

As Women’s History Month comes to a close, we must take the time to celebrate the African Feminists you should know.

Beyoncé, Rihanna, Alicia Keys… ’23 Ways You Could Be Killed If You Are Black in America’..Video

The We Are Here Movement is Alicia Keys’s initiative to counteract and raise awareness about various injustices around the world using, including income inequity and climate change, using the power of art and culture. Her latest campaign is a powerful video in which musicians and actors honor and memorialize some of those Americans who’ve been killed for living while black.

The video, in conjunction with Mic and reporter Jamilah King, is called “23 Ways You Could Be Killed If You Are Black in America,” and very plainly names things people have been doing while they’ve been killed, mostly by police officers but also by racist murderers like Dylann Roof. “Riding in your girlfriend’s car with a child in the back,” says Beyoncé, before a photograph of Philando Castile, young and sweet, appears….

However this can only be done if you want it to be, you hold the power in your hands.

Greetings citizens of the world, you’ve most likely heard of the recent exposure of the global security network called TrapWire.
