PaKou Her, a dear friend, anti-racist organizer, and one of many badass mothers I look up to, introduced me to this song. If I ever have a daughter I may just put it on repeat. PaKou is an organizer with 18MillionRising. You can connect with her on Twitter @pakouher, where she welcomes conversations about race, culture, identity, parenting, and celebrity smut.
