Black and Missing Inc., CEO Derrica Wilson, is a woman who I have utmost respect and admiration for. Derrica has 'blasted' through the barriers on an issue I have also been very publicly committed to. Historically, there has been significant inequality that exists for many families of the missing. Commonly referred to as the 'Damsel in Distress Syndrome' when missing minorities are overlooked by national news media and impacts societies perception that most missing persons are young, beautiful, white women from affluent families. With Derrica blazing this advocacy trail it is clear this is an issue that can no longer be minimized or ignored. Congrats Derrica . . . this is only the beginning of your remarkable accomplishments! Congrats on Ebony Mag too!!! :)
