Long before Pittsburgh garnered the title as one of the worst places for Black women to live, Black women called out racial and gender inequities on the job, in their communities, in their children’s schools, in healthcare systems and anywhere they endured racism. But no matter how loud they raised their voices, their words often fell on deaf ears of people in positions of power. If Pittsburgh is serious about dismantling white supremacy, it must listen to Black women. Women who stand at the intersection of race and gender. Women who suffer from oppression and rise to challenge unfair systems.
