In Charlotte Gilman’s short story The Yellow Wallpaper a well-off white woman is locked away in a room in a country house because her husband thinks she needs the rest cure. She has no bodily autonomy and eventually loses her last shred of sanity watching the wallpaper. The original story is very much about rights for women, but the idea of sanctuary is even more complicated for Black and brown women. Breonna Taylor was killed in her own home, multiple black girls are assaulted by school officers, Amanda Gorman was a national treasure one day and was tailed home and questioned the next. These Black women are not safe in the same spaces white women are, yet we feel no need to act to protect them.
