Essence: In 2018 Black Women Deserve More From Democrats — It’s Long Overdue

This year is off to the races, and Black women continue to drive the political narrative as we look towards the 2018 and 2020 election cycles.

We are all still buzzing over Oprah’s speech at the Golden Globes. The billionaire media mogul showed us that we are on the cusp of a new political and cultural era in America led by the nation’s Black women, one in which, as she said: “no one will have to say ‘me too’ again.” Oprah reminds us that Black women have been integral, and continue, to call our nation to be a people of conscience, to transform our moral and political culture. The trending #Oprah2020 hashtag signals a nation ready to heed the call and support.
