Three Encouraging Ted Talks Every Black Woman Should Watch

Updated: May 17, 2021

Hey Lovelies,

For the last few weeks, I’ve been getting inspired by watching TED Talks on YouTube.

I found a few influential TED Talks from expert speakers who dive into discussions about social justice, political empowerment, and domestic abuse.

These three Black women are challenging the conversations surrounding racial tensions, the pandemic, and raising awareness to take action against social injustices.

When I tell y’all you need to watch these TED Talks, they will bring you so much encouragement and motivation. I am speaking the truth!

Three Encouraging Ted Talks From Black Queens


Amanda Gorman

In her thought provoking Ted Talk Gordon poses two vital questions: Whose shoulders do you stand on and what do you stand for?

From a young age, Gordon suffered from a speech impediment and later realized that “if I choose not to speak out of fear then there’s no one that my silence is standing for.”

Finding the strength to speak up through poetry, Gordon broke the silence and provoked powerful political conversations.

Her words continue to empower the masses as far as the Presidential inauguration. I find her poetry both encouraging and breathtaking.

Renee Montgomery

Montgomery is making the movement against racism felt with this Ted Talk as she uses her platform to speak about police brutality and racial injustices in the U.S.
