About Voix Noire

Voix Noire began as a reactionary response to the many non-inclusive spaces that intentionally and narrowly define womanhood and femmehood to exclude many of us.

Voix Noire is made for and by Black Women and Femme identified people of ALL genders. We uplift ALL Black Women and Femme identified people through activism, storytelling and images.

Our goal is to build a platform which elevates conversations around Black liberation by centering the voices, stories and bodies of those of us who are underrepresented in the media.

Our Organizers

Racquel Daigle

Racquel is a SW Louisiana native. During her time 10 years as a Houston transplant, her life got flipped, turned upside down. After being laid off during the Great Recession, she was diagnosed with an extremely rare scalp cancer that would require 3 separate surgeries and 6 weeks of daily radiation. After 1.5 years in remission, she welcomed her first child but the joy would be forever tainted by a violent intimate partner assault.

During her attempt to gain funds to relocate outside the range of her abuser, Racquel became a recipient of Voix Noire's services. Now she's a co-organizer.

Racquel is committed to community and improving the quality of life for Black MaGes and children.
