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.
