The Black Community Has Always Sought a World Free From Nuclear Weapons March 9, 2022
Mari Faines, PSR Director of Communications and Outreach | Outrider
Black activists have worked to rid the world of nuclear weapons since the 1940s. Their approach was always intersectional, connecting the anti-nuclear movement with colonialism and the Black Freedom struggle. But, their voices were systematically erased by other parts of the movement. It’s time to stop asking whether Black people care about nuclear weapons and start honoring their historical contributions.
