The Take Back #002 – #StillDreaming Edition

The newsletter of resistance for people of color.


People of color have always been “the resistance” in the United States; they have been the moral conscience pushing us toward equal justice through long-fought struggles. Each edition of The Take Back is an effort to update you on this resistance, share resources and highlight the work of the Movement.

For our #StillDreaming edition, we pay tribute to the visionaries that came before us and we celebrate Black History in the making today. Follow us as we explore the impact of how Black visionaries are paving the way to a better tomorrow.
