Reproductive Justice & BLM Movements Partner to Fight for Black Women’s Lives

Yesterday, Trust Black Women, New Voices for Reproductive Freedom and Black Lives Matter launched a partnership to fight for freedom and justice for Black women. Leaders from the three groups participated in a discussion about the intersection of their movements, and why anti-abortion legislators and violently racist police forces are part of the same system oppressing Black women across the country.

The revolutionary ceramics of Nicki Green

The first piece of Nicki Green’s I ever saw struck me in a way I did not expect from blue and white pottery. “Nina, after Bruce Labruce” is a clay jug painted in blue and white style that originated centuries ago in China.

Unfortunately for me, however, the current bachelor, Ben Higgins, is from Warsaw, IN. Warsaw is about 45 minutes away from the tiny town where I grew up, and given that Indiana is never of pop culture relevance, I had to watch. It was my Hoosier duty.
