They faced whips and rape. They trudged frozen rivers guided only by stars towards an uncertain chance at freedom. They were force fed vitriol for daring to stand at podiums and redress generations of brutal oppression. And still they persisted. In today’s episode we peel back the glossy veneer of American history textbooks to reveal the astonishing journeys of Black women whose names may not be familiar but whose actions demonstrably shaped our nation’s conscience. Women like the “Moses of her people” Harriet Tubman whose daring missions liberated hundreds from slavery’s torment. Like Shirley Chisholm, who tarred roads of “precedent shattering” firsts from Congress to the presidential campaign trail heedless of threats from bigots. By properly celebrating their courage and sacrifice, we seed new inspiration for addressing the inequities still rooted in our systems and structures today. This is the empowering untold histories of Black women changemakers.
