Miami Takes to the Streets During the Florida March for Black Women

Close to a thousand people marched during the Florida March for Black Women on Saturday, September 30. The march began at Booker T. Washington Senior High School, moved through Overtown, into Wynwood, before returning to the high school. The national event was one of several held in cities across the country to call attention to the unique discrimination faced by black women and transwomen of color. The Florida March for Black Women took two months to organize, spanned in conjunction across ten organizations, and was led by women of color. The march also called attention to the unique regional issues faced by black women in Florida, like lack of affordable housing, gentrification, and the disparate effects of climate change.
