Rekia Boyd, say her name! Aiyana Jones, say her name! Sandra Bland, won't you say her name!
Do these names sound familiar? For me, the first two were unfamiliar. But they should not have been.
Last week, we discussed with Seattle King County YWCA's Patricia Hayden how race and gender overlap, especially how the feminist movement has handled race. This time, Patricia and I (Martha) talk about the reverse.
Race is always a tricky subject to talk about. But Seattle, we’ve got to talk about it. Because we've got a long history of racism in our beautiful city, beginning with how the land was taken from the still-unrecognized Duwamish people including chief Sealth (Seattle).
Even though we're progressive in many ways, we've got a hell of a lot of work to do when it comes to racial equality.
