Black women are in a very powerful political position. Unfortunately, many black women are heavily impacted by social injustices that affect their households and communities such as losing husbands and children to the hands of law enforcement. The emotional burden of this national crisis is felt among every single Black woman in the United States. Black women utilize their influence in their households and communities by demanding platforms for social change which starts at the voting polls. The Census Bureau concluded that Black women had the highest turnout rate in both the 2008 and 2012 elections. This proves that Black women are responsible for electing President Obama for both terms! Now that’s the power of Black women’s vote!
