FREEDOM by Genae Shields

According to the US Department of Justice, for every Black woman that reports rape or sexual assault, 15 Black women do not, and it’s even less likely among Black men and the LGBTQIA+ community. This project discusses how the history of sexual violence within the black community has newly fostered internalized oppression against itself due to being oppressed for many years by white individuals.  Many cases of sexual violence within the Black community either go unreported or ignored by officials. 

This book was handmade to provide Black identifying men, women, and non-binary individuals with a safe space to share their experiences with sexual violence in the hopes that they are able to heal from their experience. The stories of these individuals are a reclamation of their strength and humanity, and as well as an inspiration for others to share their stories, in hopes of building a better world for our communities.
