Salvador-based La Frida bike project combines biking and art to empower Black women to have healthier lifestyles

La Frida is a project created by self-proclaimed Black "cycloativistis." The project unites biking and street art to encourage urban mobility among Black women by amplifying their voices and encouraging them to occupy more spaces in public life. The project teaches women and girls to ride bikes while creating a “moving home” for them to express and share art and poetry. Paying particular attention to the way racism and sexism impede Black women from positive interpersonal interactions, the…See More

Celebrate Pride by being trans-inclusive

This Pride month, express your solidarity for and support of gay and queer folx by being more trans-inclusive! Seems pretty obvious, right?

I will always love and admire Black men, here’s why

Black men have been getting a bad rap since forever. They’re, “aggressive, violent, cheaters, liars, thieves…” or at least that’s the picture that’s painted of them. While this may be true for some, it is not the truth for all. I believe there are some decent, faithful, friendly, caring, loving black men out there. I know this because I’ve met some of them. IN MY LIFETIME I’VE MET… ….an amazing guy who was all about his daughters. Probably one of the best fathers in the world. He was also an…See More
