83 Notes

Above all else, our politics initially sprang from the shared belief that black women are valuable, that our liberation is a necessity not as an adjunct to somebody else’s but because of our need as human persons for autonomy. This may seem so obvious as to sound simplistic, but it is apparent that no other ostensibly progressive movement has ever considered our specific oppression a priority or worked seriously for the ending of that oppression […] We realize that the only people who care enough about us to work consistently for our liberation is us
