Twitter Tells the World #BlackWomenDidThat

A day after Hillary Clinton’s historic Democratic presidential nomination, Twitter is awash in talk about the positive contributions and achievements of Black women. While it may seem odd that folks are celebrating Black women just hours after Clinton made history, but we’ve been integral to her rise through the ranks.

From Black suffragettes like Ida B. Wells and Sojourner Truth to groundbreaking politicians like Shirley Chisholm and Carol Moseley Braun, Black women have paved the way for this very moment.

Inspired by all of the awesomeness, Twitter users @anthoknees and @MyloMU decided they wanted to highlight the accomplishments of Black women, and @Bitterblue55 suggested the hashtag #BlackWomenDidThat.
