According to Keneshia Grant, Howard University assistant professor of political science, Black women are focused on criminal justice and maternal death rates.
“In many ways, Black women are like the ‘average voter.’ They’re worried about housing. They’re [worried] about education. They’re worried about making a decent wage,” Grant said. “There are some things that will hit us differently, but there are some things that will be important to all voters and will be important to Black women in the same way.”
