The most neglected person in America is the Black Woman. –Malcolm X

Almost six decades later, the truth of this profound statement continues to be etched in the lives of black women in America.

In this session, join Education and Outreach Specialist Silvie Drouillard to dissect how rape culture throughout history has romanticized and sexualized the trauma of black women. This workshop will highlight the significant differences between reporting by Black female survivors and their white counterparts and the impact of not being believed.
