What White People Need to Learn

By Mary-Alice Daniel Let’s take a look at what “white” actually means — it might surprise you. <!– –>                Invariably, around February of each year, coinciding with Black History Month, you’ll hear people asking, “Why isn’t there a white history month?” Do these people mean we should condense all the American history centering around white people to […]

White Sexual Violence against Enslaved Black Women

Historians have estimated that at least 58% of all enslaved women between 15 and 30 years of age were sexually assaulted by white men during the antebellum period.
