Happy Whole History Month!
January was packed with projects, panels, Paris and possibilities. Much of this month will be devoted to developing and producing our Bury The Ratchet Campaign launching in March with Spelman College. We’ve had some initial press (Tom Joyner Morning Show w Jacque Reid, Washington Watch w Roland Martin) yet therer's been significant conversation and speculation in the blogiverse and on social media, no doubt caused by its’ deliberately buzzy name.
What #BuryTheRatchet is not: An anti-anything. A protest. A petition. An effort to shut down any reality show or real sister involved in one. It is not a class struggle, a judgment, a criticism or an argument. This is not another kind of girl fight.
What #BuryTheRatchet is: A pro-sister movement. An analysis. A dialogue. A support to give voice. An honest and fearless look at how we are perceived and how we treat each other. A collecting and connecting of young and new images and information. An effort to end emotional violence between us and promote the diversity of the humanity of women and girls of color. This is another kind of kindness.
Stay tuned for how to be involved.
