It’s one thing to be black and another thing to be a Black Women. Black women are faced with more scrutiny and backlash than any other minority group. Even compared to white women, black women were reportedly paid 78% less than white women and 91% than white men in 2014. However, according to reports in that same year black women outnumbered all the other racial and gender groups in college enrollment. From ages 18-24, about half of black women are pursuing degrees, that’s 9.7% compare to white women at 6.6%, white men at 5.1% and black men at 7.0%. We are dominating in college enrollment and achieving our degrees but, still remain last in the totem pole.
