“For the black community in particular, it was hard to watch her demonisation by the British media & public. But seeing her come into her own,& use her platform to speak abt what matters to her, has sent a message even louder than she may have intended”
Meghan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex, has been named as one of the Financial Times 25 most influential women of 2022.
#Meghan has become a symbol of resilience to many silenced women. Specifically speaking for women of color, and even more specifically mixed and black women.
It was wonderful to meet all the beautiful SussexSquad members who traveled from various parts of the country to The Power of Women Event in support of Meghan The Duchess of Sussex. She had a discussion with Rabbi Sandy Sasso about women’s empowerment and supporting young women.
At one point in the conversation it was heartwarming to hear Meghan acknowledge The Sussex Squad Supporters and the amazing work being done with fundraising in support of various charities. The Squad responded with cheers of love.❤️

That is what we are all about. The participants and their families never give up. They are the epitome of resilience. And that is a lesson for all of us. #IG23twitter.com/aletheamagazin…
It's always been blindingly obvious that Meghan was a victim of racism from within the Royal household. There may be other reasons for refusing to believe this but I can only think of one: racism. In fact, the louder the accusations of lying, the more racist the accuser must be.
✍️It is admirable that Fulani had the courage to speak out about what happened to her at the Palace. Rightfully, the public is outraged. But how many incidents like that don’t get called out, and are not challenged? twitter.com/andrewbuncombe…
✍️Duchess Meghan is using her platform to speak out on women's empowerment.

By all accounts, Meghan had a wonderful women’s empowerment event last night 💚💜 and Harry and the Invictus Games Düsseldorf committee released a terrific promo video today, starring himself and Meghan. Tickets for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies go on sale today! 💛🖤
"I think it really validates the account Meghan Markle and Prince Harry gave..."
As @ManduReid says, they were all there for a few hours and had a terrible experience. Meghan lived in the UK for three years.
