“I think about us, black women, a lot. How many of us are battered and how many are champions. I note that strides that have replaced the tiptoe; I watch the new configurations we have given to personal relationships, wonder what shapes are forged and what merely bent. I think about the sister no ...

Black Women's Blueprint

Every year around the time of so-called Independence Day, Black Women's Blueprint would visit and sit with Grand-Lady Recy Taylor, in Abbeville Alabama to discuss what this country owes to Black women and to every survivor no matter their identity. One of her most powerful answers: 'to outlive them all".

Trigger warning: sexual violence

The abuse and exploitation of Black Women & Girls is a pathology internal to our community.

Its origins, however, are external.

Here is a history lesson many do not want exposed. It's humiliating.

Reaching through humiliation for the truth is important.

We can't heal what we can not name.

During the Civil War, Tubman served as a spy, nurse, and cook for Union Forces. In 1863, she helped free more than 700 African Americans during a raid in South Carolina—a feat that earned her the nickname "General Tubman."

Tubman guided Union soldiers along the Combahee River to capture Confederate land. Tubman became the first woman to lead an armed assault during the Civil War. She went on to work on similar missions with the famed Massachusetts 54th Infantry before spending the final years of the war tending to injured soldiers. A century after Tubman’s significant role in South Carolina, a newly formed black feminist group took the name Combahee River Collective in her honor––paying honor to Tubman’s work later in her life as a powerful advocate for women’s suffrage. Born Araminta Ross, she escaped the bonds of slavery as a young woman in the early 1800s. She returned to the South many times as a "conductor" on the Underground Railroad to lead other African Americans to freedom. She later earned the nickname “Moses,” a biblical reference alluding to the Book of Exodus, and the story of the prophet Moses leading the Hebrews to freedom out of Egypt.

We go forward with deep reverence from the site where the marker lives to commemorate the story of Mary Turner’s legacy of resistance.

We are full with humility, inspiration, deep gratitude and reflection for the community we shared with the family of Mary Turner today.

Our work continues, the preservation of Black women’s stories continues, the storm and crusade to end violence against Black women and girls and their unborn children continues.

The photo below was taken at the Webb Miller Community Church where we sat in prayer just before going to the site where Mary Turner was killed.

We remain deeply grounded in the work of truth, justice, healing, and reconciliation.

I'm an independent investigative reporter looking into the unsolved 2006 homicide of Tiesha Sargeant, a 26-year-old black woman who lived in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. I'm posting here because she was murdered at 1785 Bedford Ave, right in the neighborhood. If you have ANY information about the time period or crime, even the tiniest sliver of information that you're not sure could be helpful--IT IS, I ASSURE YOU. Everything helps.
