The Speech from the Women's March You Needed to Hear
Editor's Note: The text below is a modified version of a speech that Angela Sutton gave at the Philadelphia Women's March that took place on January 21, 2017.
I am a black woman, a mother of two beautiful black boys, and I live in Northeast Philadelphia.
I have lived in poverty, in Philadelphia, my whole life.
Philadelphia has the highest poverty rate of any large American city. The face of that poverty is most likely a black mother, like me.
