Sisters In Strength Contribute to ELLE.com’s Black Girl State of the Union
“We gathered an impressive array of black girls—young women and their adult advocates. Some are just 10 years old, about the age Marley was when the public first met her. Some are in high school and college. Some have been engaged in activism for decades. All are black girls and women. This is the state of our union,” wrote Melissa Harris-Perry in an introduction to her curation of the ideas and concerns of black girls across across the country. Members of our 2016-2018 Sisters in Strength cohort Naa’ilah Frazier and Sierra Williams contributed to the piece that ran as the president gave his State of the Union address, alongside Teresa Younger of the Ms. Foundation, Marsai Martin of Blackish fame, author of PUSHOUT Dr. Monique Morris, and more.
