We want to give a special shout out to Mariame Kaba of Survived and Punished, Project NIA, Chicago Taskforce on Violence Against Girls & Young Women.
Her latest walking tour, “Slavery & Resistance in NYC,” explored historically relevent sites across lower Manhattan. It was graciously offered in solidarity with #InternationalWhoresDay direct actions.
From the walking tour’s description: “This walking tour will discuss how Blacks contributed to building New York and how they struggled for their freedom. We will visit the African Slave Market on Wall Street, stops on the Underground Railroad, the African Burial Ground and other sites important to the histories of slavery and resistance in NYC. It covers the years from the early 17th century though the mid-19th century (1626-1865).”
Mariame’s tour raised significant funds for our comrade Alisha, and we are so grateful for this show of love and support!
