Watch and share last night's #UnderTheBlacklight, "Educators Ungagged: Teaching Truth in the Era of Racial Backlash." It is vital that we listen to teachers and students, and continue the difficult but necessary work of organizing to support them. youtu.be/-WVjPWBqI64

In a school named after Robert E. Lee, in a majority Black school, Amy Donofrio was fired for displaying a Black Lives Matter flag in her classroom. Just think about the message in that--Robert E. Lee is fine, but asserting the value of lives he fought to enslave, not ok.
Join us now to hear the truth about the censorship and firing of educators for teaching the truth. Amazing line up! youtube.com/watch?v=-WVjPW…
Still time to RSVP for tonight's #UnderTheBlacklight conversation with educators who have been targeted, silenced, and pushed out as part of this repressive disinformation campaign: bit.ly/blacklight26 twitter.com/ZinnEdProject/…

And just wait for it--tomorrow, there will be those who say the Dems must abandon racial justice because they can't win with it, even though most of them didn't take the disinformation about CRT seriously and made no real effort to understand what was going on. twitter.com/BerniceKing/st…
50 years ago today, these 5 paragraphs recounted the murder of my brother. Now as his sole survivor, my search for the truth tugs at my soul. 5 paragraphs are not enough. OHIO STUDENT KILLED IN 2‐COLLEGE BATTLE nytimes.com/1971/11/02/arc…
We need to hear from our students, teachers, administrators, and advocates who have been targeted by campaigns of harassment and misinformation for teaching truth and standing for racial justice. Join #UnderTheBlacklight tomorrow: bit.ly/blacklight26

I’ve been thrilled to be in a series of public conversation’s with the amazing @gocjhunt whose must-watch documentary uses humor to uncover the deeper impulses behind right wing efforts to obscure our history. Stream it here: pbs.org/video/the-neut…
Thanks Joy for keeping the no BS zone open. And big shout out to all the teachers who are standing up against this right wing bullying. People who sacrifice lucrative careers to inspire our children to be the best they can be don't deserve to be Willie Hortonized! Support them! twitter.com/JoyAnnReid/sta…
Our public school system is our great experiment in creating multiracial democracy, says @sandylocks in closing. "This is our legacy we're fighting for." And we can't allow disinformation and lies take it away from us. #TruthBeTold

It wasn’t just the Republicans that attacked Anita Hill. The sad truth is that Democrats, African Americans, and the mainstream media abandoned her. Tonight, witnesses to this history will uncover the politics that left her twisting in the wind. Join us: bit.ly/blacklight25
Most people remember where they were when Anita Hill testified. I can’t forget being an eyewitness to this history. But it didn’t end there. Tonight, we'll look at the intersectional failures that put Thomas on SCOTUS + the ongoing costs to democracy. ➡️ bit.ly/blacklight25
1 year ago today Senate Republicans confirmed Amy Coney Barrett 8 days before election when 65 million people had already voted after blocking Merrick Garland 8 months before election. Never forget

In Oct '91, @AnitaHill's testimony inspired millions, ushering in an era of truth telling around gender-based violence. In this week’s episode, Anita explains why she doesn't regret speaking out & how she hopes to inspire the next generation of Black women bit.ly/intersectional…

The scripts of righteous indignation that "himpathy" solicits. Notice anything familiar? @kate_manne twitter.com/AAPolicyForum/…
Black support for Clarence Thomas shocked many legal scholars and activists who saw his nomination as a clear effort by conservatives to undermine racial justice work. Listen as Luke Harris reflects on that support and the fear that silenced the community.

The lessons we haven't learned in the 30 years since the Hill/Thomas hearings. Patriarchal tactics from Thomas to Kavanaugh in defense of sexual harassment and assault. Watch:

When Clarence Thomas denounced Anita Hill’s testimony as a “high-tech lynching”, his performative righteous outrage was a turning point in the hearings that did exactly what it was designed to do. Listen to the full ep. here: bit.ly/intersectional…
30 year ago today, Clarence Thomas was confirmed to the SCOTUS, with support surging after Anita Hill told her truth. We are still paying the price for this “misogynoir”. AAPF grew out of this tragedy, as co-host Luke Harris and I explain, with reflections by Anita Hill. twitter.com/AAPolicyForum/…
30 yrs ago today, the Senate voted 52-48 to confirm Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court. In today's episode, @sandylocks speaks with Luke Harris & Anita Hill about the consequences of the monumental hearing, and the legacy of Black women's truth telling: bit.ly/intersectional…

30 years ago today, Anita Hill became an exemplar of courage, but believing her was the road not taken by millions of Americans. Our community and our nation have paid a steep price for this failure ever since.
She wrote this for the NYTimes at a crucial moment in the nomination when just a few votes separated his victory from defeat. We were, of course, crushed. I didn't understand it then, nor do I now. Now that he has helped crush the VRA and more, I wonder what she would think now. twitter.com/dreamhampton/s…
'.@sandylocks once told me that “Black men are feared, Black women are despised.” Hopefully, #RKelly will serve as a cautionary tale of the damage we do when we ignore Black women and empower Black men to abuse them' my latest for @makeitplainorg make-it-plain.org/2021/10/01/r-k…

My shout out to all the sistas who refused to look away. Respect. How R. Kelly Got Away With It nytimes.com/2021/10/01/opi…
Creativity and courage! Congratulations @KeeangaYamahtta, @DrIbram and to the entire class! twitter.com/macfound/statu…
So sistas, we are the ones we have been waiting for--to believe and to take the power we have to hold those who harm us accountable. Thanks @KimFoxx for putting authority behind that belief. blackamericaweb.com/2021/09/27/kim…
Back in March 2019, we were joined by Kenyette Tisha Barnes (@K_TishB), one of the co-founders of #MuteRKelly, who shared some of the victim-blaming narratives that enabled R. Kelly's rampant abuse of Black girls to go unchecked for decades: podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/2-i…

At last, Black women are believed, and today, my friend @AnitaHill's book "Believing" drops. As part of her legal team, I will never forget witnessing the personal courage and stamina that she channeled to live through the unimaginable attacks she endured for telling the truth.
Thank you @K_TishB @dreamhampton & @oronike for supporting Black survivors--doing the work that others should have done, but didn't. You climbed a mountain of disbelief, disregard, and disrespect to declare that Black women and girls matter. Today, after years, they finally do.
"The fault lines between race and gender injustice have shielded behavior like Kelly’s, permitting an intra-racial closing of ranks and an inter-racial resolve to look away." From an oldie but goody. thebaffler.com/latest/i-belie…
The courage, dignity, and strength I saw firsthand inspired a generation. 30 years later, her striking manifesto elevates the work yet to be done to end gender-based violence. Hers is a voice that has earned the attention of the world. It’s well past time for us to listen.
What a banner day for BELIEVING Black women! As if on cue, Anita Hill's book, BELIEVING, arrives tomorrow, reminding us of how long we've been at this. I'll never forget witnessing the unimaginable attacks she endured for telling the truth. sites.prh.com/anitahillbook
He believed he could lie, but the truth finally caught up with him. It shouldn't have taken this many women, and this many years, for Black women to be believed--and valued. Now time for soul searching. nytimes.com/live/2021/09/2…
