Over the last year, we’ve seen Tarana Burke’s #MeToo movement take over mainstream media. The movement was co-opted by the White Hollywood elite after an Alyssa Milano tweet went viral—and now the tides are turning and the hushed sexual and physical violence women have faced in the Black community is coming to light.
With women coming forward claiming they were assaulted by some of our Black male icons, from Bill Cosby to Nas and even our own family members and partners, we want to know, is the black community ready for our very own #MeToo movement?
Answer the poll questions below and we will share the responses on episode 5 of ‘Listen To Black Women.’
