For Women’s History Month, Jezebel and The Root are partnering for JezeRoot, a series that focuses on women of color, domestic workers and sex workers.
Each year on March 8—including last Thursday—the world celebrates International Women’s Day. The holiday dates back to 1911 and is the origin of Women’s History Month, which we also celebrate in March and which The Root is celebrating in tandem with our sister site Jezebel.
We shouldn’t need a Women’s History Month.
There are literally too many things to go to in the fall. During that season in New York City, every charity group, institution, media company and rando (including The Root) throws a ball, gala or fancy party of some kind. Our own shindig, The Root 100, goes down Nov. 9.
Happy New Year and shit, everyone! If you're reading this, you've made it to 2016 (congrats!) and you've decided, for whatever reason, to spend at least one second of this year reading VSB. So thanks for that. Since you're here, I might as well let you know that 2015 was, by every measure, the best year in VSB's…
Last month, BET invited Damon to New York City to address the New Black wackness running amok and read an edited version of "Eight Signs You're "Just Black" Even Though You Believe You're "New Black."
