I said what I said last week. And I meant it. While the nation talks about the mistreatment of Black men, if anyone has the right to raise their hand, chime in or demand to be a part of the conversation, it’s Black women. The ones who have the most skin in the game. We’ve been doing the work and it’s beyond time that we reap the rewards.

Last week, after I wrote my piece about who protects Black women, I learned about the sexual assault and murder of 19-year-old activist Oluwatoyin Salau.

She was violated and murdered at the hands of a Black man despite having spent the last days of her life fighting for them, for us.

She deserved better.

And she’s not the only one.

In a far less severe example of misogynoir, rapper J. Cole, in the midst of the current uprising, released an entire song criticizing Noname’s, a Black woman rapper's, tone.

Every day, every where Black girls and women are undervalued, underappreciated and underpaid.

And as the mothers of humanity, we deserve better.

With that fact in mind, we’re releasing a new design, line of products and a mantra for life: Black Girls Deserve Better.

Twenty percent (20%) of all proceeds raised from the sale of Black Girls Deserve Better merch will be donated to For The Gworls, an organization dedicated to raising money for housing and affirmative surgery for Black trans folks.

You can shop the line of products, available in black, white and gray, here.
