African-born advocate and refugee, reflects on being a Black woman in the US 

In February, before Women’s History Month in March and the appointment of the first Black female Justice to the US Supreme Court in April, the UN refugee agency, UNHCR, sat down with refugee advocate Lourena Gboeah to talk about Black History Month. She spoke about fleeing conflict in Liberia, building a new life in the United States and her hopes for the future of Black women in the US.
