Muchacha "POC Solidarity"
Muchacha Issue #11
Since the birth of the Black Lives Matter movement in 2013, it has been inspiring to see the beautiful display of love and support demonstrated around the world. More and more POC (people of color) are realizing that our freedom is tied to each other's—we are not free until we are all free. But that acknowledgement also comes with confronting the oppressive behaviors that are still happening in our communities.
Through visual art, essays, poetry, fliers, articles, photography, and collages, the contributors discuss the ways in which people of color promote unity and navigate accountability. Topics include confronting anti-blackness, transgender women of color facing police violence, men of color fighting misogyny, light skin privilege, #notyourasiansidekick, cultural appropriation, and more. Together, we need to realize our true power and know that our power is only stronger if we are united.
