Megan Thee Stallion had a huge 2020, but one of the highlights you may have missed is a letter she got from Rep. Maxine Waters shouting out the rapper's New York Times op-ed speaking up for Black women.
"One of the highlights of my year was getting a letter from Congress Woman @repmaxinewaters I am so honored to be recognized by such an amazing woman and I promise to keep using my voice and encourage others to use theirs !" the artist wrote alongside a copy of the letter from Waters she received in November honoring the "WAP" rapper's powerful opinion piece in which she argued that the idea of protecting Black women shouldn't be controversial.
"I read the op-ed you wrote that appeared in The New York Times recently and I can't thank you enough for bringing much needed attention to the plight of Black women, not just here in the United States -- but everywhere," Waters wrote in the letter reposted by Megan. "You are so right that Black women have paved the way and have done so by leading with courage and bravery. There is also this notion, which you touched upon, that we as Black women have the ability to bear a heavier burden than everyone else in this society."
