“The pay gap does not affect all women the same way.”

Aug. 23 is Black Women’s Equal Pay Day, which marks the additional time it takes for black women to earn what white men earn in a year. To put it simply, it takes 20 months for a black woman to earn the same wages as a white man earns in 12.

According to the Center for American Progress, black women earn about 60% of what white men earn. The percentage is strikingly low in comparison to the 79% wage difference when grouping all women together. 

Fusion contextualized the wage disparities by doing the math for some of the richest and most famous black women, like Beyoncé and Halle Berry.

A major Hollywood milestone has been met, and it’s been a long time coming. Ava DuVernay became mighty high in demand, fielding interest from a variety of projects as wide-ranging as Marvel’s Black Panther to an original sci-fi tale from the mind of Colin Trevorrow. Eventually she landed on an adaptation of A Wrinkle of Time at Disney as her next project, and as the film’s pre-production continues, we’ve now learned that it marks a genuinely new piece of history: DuVernay has become the first African American woman to ever direct a film with a budget over $100 million.

This is aweome!!! A Wrinkle In Time is one of my all time favorite books.

How Four Teenage Girls Organized This Week’s Huge Silent Protest
It started with a simple tweet and grew into one of the largest (and most peaceful) protests this week.

“Eva Lewis is someone you should know. She and three other black teenage girls were the driving force behind Monday’s massive sit-in protest in Millennium Park and subsequent march to protest gun violence and police brutality in Chicago.The event to “break the divide between communities, and bring youth from all areas of Chicago in solidarity with Black Lives Matter,” drew more than 1,000 people and the attention of local and national media—not bad for a group of 16- and 17-year-olds who organized the whole thing on social media. “
