Black Women’s Blueprint…Jamia Wilson

Black Women’s Blueprint

The Black Women’s Blueprint began in 2008 as sister circles discussing the current state of African-American women throughout the U.S.; it  then evolved into an organization that delves into “research, historical documentation, public advocacy and organizing steeped in the struggles of Black women within their diverse communities and within dominant culture.”

BWB aims to “take action to secure social, political and economic equality in American society now. We work to develop a culture where women of African descent are fully empowered and where gender, race and other disparities are erased.”

BWI is also the headliner for the March For Black Women.
