“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 ...

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".

What we are witnessing in Virginia and on the national stage is the repetition of the same story which will only end when we begin to lean into a Black imperative of “never-again.” From the vantage point of Black Women’s Blueprint, these disclosures, stories of violation, will only end when we...

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.
