Meghan Markle Releases Passionate Statement To Mark Black History Month

The Duchess of Sussex has contributed to
an op-ed in honour of Black History Month in the US. It comes after she and her husband, Prince Harry, made their first joint public appearance of the
year at the NAACP Image Awards.

Meghan, 40, spoke to Anita Hill, professor at Brandeis
University, about Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s historic nomination to
the Supreme Court.

“The civil rights history of tomorrow is being written today,” the
Duchess said. “Judge Jackson’s nomination has opened new ground for
women’s representation at the highest level of a judicial system that for too
long has tilted against the very community she hails from.”

Meghan added: “For the millions of young women who will
rightfully find inspiration from this moment, let’s remind ourselves that Black
achievement is something that exists not just today or yesterday, and not just
in moments of celebration, but as a fabric woven into the entire chronicle of
the American story.”

Anita reached out to the Duchess for her article because she “couldn’t
help but see a measure of parallelism given her experience navigating uncharted
territory as a Black woman”.
