Rooted in Liberation

From the abolition of slavery to freedom summer to Black Lives Matter, Black liberation has always been on the table. We’re at a pivotal moment in U.S. history where more people have joined the struggle. The Rooted in Liberation series acknowledges the historical gains of Black liberation but aims to use the momentum of this current moment to center and amplify the regional efforts for Black liberation.

Rooted in Liberation is a collaboration between KUOW and Lola’s Ink, exploring how the momentum of this current civil uprising can continue the fight that Black and Brown communities in Seattle have led for Black liberation.

Journalist Jenna Hanchard, the creator of Lola’s Ink, a platform exploring stories of Black girl liberation, is the main reporter and host of this series.
