Kill Your ‘Masters’ — They’re Enslavers Now

The language of slavery continues to undermine the humanity of enslaved people — and exonerate its benefactors

While the movement for racial justice has many Americans seeking a more complete understanding of our shared history, there remains a contingent of folks convinced that “solving racism” comes down to Black people simply choosing to “move on” from slavery (and Jim Crow and housing discrimination and the school-to-prison pipeline and redlining and voter suppression, and...)

Momentum 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.
