I work with mothers who don’t eat. Because of hunger and extreme poverty, they take a staple food basket and divide it up for their families. Because of the pandemic, black women are very busy: busy in surviving, in creating survival strategies.  Because, when public policy doesn’t reach us, we make the public policies.  “All we have is each other”.  Yes, we are on our own.
