As this is the start of Black History month, we wanted to raise up the work of Black women who’ve expanded our knowledge of sexuality and why Black Lives Matter. So stay with us. We talk about talented and courageous Black women: Audre Lorde, Angela Bowen, Mandy Carter, and Imani Woody. And we explain why Black Lives Matter to us as two white women.
