She is me. I am her. Black girls matter.

Sharing the stage with my @resistancerevivalchorus sistren on Saturday was transformational. This call for recognition by Abby Dobson permeates though by bones releasing my soul's fear and sadness around the continued erasure of Black girls and woman.

In this movement and in life we are forgotten. Not only are our brothers, cousins, fathers, and husbands stolen from us, but we too have our dreams looted and lives cut short. Still no justice for womxn like #BreonnaTaylor #IyannaDior and countless other unnamed sisters. The silence is deafening.

Thank you Abby for allowing us to hear in song what I've been feeling for so long. Just waiting for the world to catch up.

Black sis, I see you. I hear you. You matter.

In solidarity and love,
Solonje
