Women of Color (WOC) Baby Boomers are 50 years old+. Born between 1946-1964, we are daughters of the Civil Rights movement. African American Civil Rights activists created the blueprint and laid the foundation for the success of the women’s movement and many immigrants.
We are still radical. Some of us live our lives out loud. Others thrive on a quiet path in mind, body and soul. Yet, we continue to break down barriers and preserve freedom in our own special way. Did you know we were pioneers? Most of us were the ‘first’ women of color to achieve all kinds of thing. That’s why we have moral authority to have our say about what is happening in America today. We can use our unique voices, experience and wisdom to teach, mentor and listen to the younger generation. By blogging we are showing that our voices have not been silenced by age. We do own a lion share of the consumer marketing space. Why brands do not market to us more widely is beyond me. Maybe we should use our economic power in more strategic ways.
Women of Color need to communicate with each other. I believe that we women can save the world! Let’s unite on the many issues that impact our lives and this planet. Many of us were children activists marching along with our parents for the right to vote. Armed US military guards escorted some of us to school as children. Some of us saw our children and lands taken from us. We survived terrorism, exploitation, racism, sexism, segregation, Jim Crow Laws and more.
In honor of the Voting Rights Act 50th anniversary, this list of 50+ year old Women of Color Bloggers is offered as a beginning of our mission to connect and build community. We included one male blogger. We are still searching for more MOC Boomer brothers! (Men of Color).
If we find 100 WOC and MOC Boomer Bloggers, we will create a free directory.
The following WOC bloggers write about culture, food, sustainability, history, mothers, grandmothers, entrepreneurs, reinvention, reimagination, photography, art, and media. We post on genealogy, spirituality, faith, empowerment, intimacy, relationships, fashion, hair, gardening, parenting, homeschooling, travel, fitness, cooking, healthy eating, tech, books, films, politics and more.
