Representing the unconventional, the unrepresented and the marginalised through an exploration of Black womanhood & herstory

Our founder Tyra wanted Herstory to be a safe space to navigate political affairs through words and imagery, and we hope that you can find inspiration and affirmation on this page. We aim to inform and educate on issues typically swept under the rug, changing history to be more inclusive of Black women and non binary people of colour. Herstory means uplifting voices of the oppressed and giving them a platform to express themselves unabashedly, free from the constraints of structural inequality. On this page you will find our Saturday School which has informative posts on influential figures and academics such as Angela Davis and Bell Hooks as well as opinion pieces and articles addressing various topics from Black womanhood and identity and Black history, to mental health and disability. Solidarity is integral to the liberation of Black people and people of colour and we want to demonstrate that by showcasing the work of diverse and talented people. In the words of Claudia Jones, a people’s art is the genesis of their freedom.
