In honor of Women’s History Month, youth reporters discussed some of the women that history forgot and, more importantly, the women of color whose stories were never told. The group spent the most time on Ella Baker, who was a mentor to some of the biggest names in the Civil Rights Movement from behind the scenes, and Barbara Lee, who was the only congressperson to vote against the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Terrorists Act. After watching the video “Here’s Why There’s No Men’s History Month” by MTV News the youth gathered their individual thoughts which you can find below.
