From One Survivor to Another

October 6, 2011
“If Black women were free, it would mean that everyone else would have to be free since our freedom would necessitate the destruction of all the systems of oppression.”

The Combahee River Collective Statement (1980)

If we want to free people, we need to ask those of us who understand and deal with these systems on a daily basis. It’s not about comparing who has it worse than others, but rather, about understanding who struggles with multiple systems, yet still survives— and then asking them how they do it.
