Momentum
A blog from Medium about the fight against anti-Black racism.

About Momentum

This is a blog that captures and reflects the moment we find ourselves in, one where rampant anti-Black racism is leading to violence, trauma, protest, reflection, sorrow, and more. Momentum doesn’t look away when the news cycle shifts. Momentum doesn’t chase the news or report it out dispassionately. Momentum reflects the lived experiences of people right now, and ongoing, in America. About this month's header image: Chang W. Lee/The New York Times/Redux
