A little Background: I started this Blog & all of the events related to it in response to my personal need to address the damaging effects racial stereotypes had on my sexuality as a Black woman.  I realized these stereotypes even played a role in how I was harassed on the street.  Because I aslo Identify as a Queer Black woman, when I decided to dress in a way that was non- gender conforming, the harassment I received changed as well.  From being physically assaulted on the street, to threats of rape & even death.  I simply refused to be afraid in my own neighborhood anymore.  This walk is for all who are down for the cause of course, But I stress that it is Anti-Street Harassment rally for Black Women & LGBTQ folk & our Allies:)  That detail is important to me, I can only trust that folks will understand.

WAIT, THERE”S MORE….

I’ll also be organizing a few events in relation to anti-street harassment leading up to the Goddess Walk.  Including TWEET CHATS,  Collecting Photos &  Stories of women on the street.  Details COMING SOON!
