Thousands filled Emancipation Park for the inaugural March for Black Women. According to the Houston Chronicle, the march celebrated black sisterhood and empowerment, advocate the importance of voting. Nisha Randle and Kandice Webber, both of who are advocates for pushing forward the plight of Black women, organized the march. A similar march was held last year for women of all races, however, Randle and Webber felt Black women, in particular, were left out of the overall focus of the march and decided to make it a priority in 2018. The pair highlighted more than just issues pertaining to Black women but women of color like immigration, education, sex trafficking, and more.
