On Friday at the Black Women’s Agenda event in Washington D.C., Hillary Clinton told the crowd of mostly African-American women: “Black Girl Magic is real.”
According to the Huffington Post, the Democratic presidential nominee spoke at the event hosted by the Black Women’s Agenda Symposium Workshop.
“[Black women] leave the house every morning, put on that game face that we all practice, and enter a society that consistently challenges your worth ― with the images you see, the lower pay that so many take home; that try to silence your voices and break your spirits. That you remain fierce in the face of the challenges,” she said.
“While your stories are often missing from the history books, make no mistake, you are the changemakers, the path breakers and the ground shakers,” she said. “And you are proof that yes indeed, black girl magic is real,” she added.
Earlier this week, First Lady Michelle Obama spoke on behalf of Clinton a a rally at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, saying that Clinton rally is the woman for the job.
“A candidate is not going to suddenly change when they get into office. It’s the opposite, in fact, because the minute that individual takes that oath, they are under the hottest, harshest light there is,” the first lady said.
