Blacked Out Part 4: Silenciada

Black women


In a world that never intended

On hearing.

Pushed, chattled, folded into the margins.

They demanded, why I was so booming?

We whispered, consulted

Ancestors and layers of history.

How to explain the necessity of being heard, the movement of navigating existence


An ubiquitous unspoken path of being louder in societies that silence you.
