QUOTE: Black Women in Alabama Saved Themselves Last Night

Black women voters in Alabama showed up last night and helped elect Democrat Doug Jones to the U.S. Senate. L. Joy spoke to Terrell Jermaine Starr at The Root for the story.

“There’s a difference between ‘Black women should do the work’ and ‘We need to support black women who are doing work,’” said L. Joy Williams, chairwoman of Higher Heights. “It needs to come with resources and actual support, and not just tweets and retweets and a hashtag.”
