I agree Anna Carr. The dignity and class she displayed was something to behold, and something many Black women emulate in different situations, especially at work. Grinning and bearing the weight of it all is what Black women do best. To only see only her at the match frustration without looking at the slights and inequalities experienced over her professional career is an injustice. She is a class act, and I’m happy that she speaks out about the many ways Black women aren’t believed. Whether she tells how we aren’t believed in the hospital delivery room or on the job, we need more of this. Thanks so much reading.
