I hear people quoting a lot of black men who were freedom fighters which is valid But when I think about next level courage to ball your fist up and look bigotry, racist,sexism, homophobia and transphobia right in the eye and fight against it, I feel like blk women like Ida B Well and non binary folks like Marsha P Johnson are of the bravest of us all and if ima fight any injustice I wanna have the courage of freedom fighters like them tthe liberation of black womxn and black trans womxn lead to the liberation of all black people.

I made this song a year ago with Norbert . I recorded this spoken word piece on my iPhone voice memo of Crista Noel 5 years ago when we were working on a documentary.

As it’s pride month and officially BLM Uprsiing part 2 I encourage people to study past movement that were jump start or organized by Black Women, LGBTQAI and Non Binary folks. History of policing and prisons here in the US & the laws made to keep Blk and Queer folk suppressed in this country for over 450 years.

If we focus and start understanding the why , we will longer waste time arguing on the what.
Ight that’s enough lol love y’all
