About Blurred Bylines By Shari Rose

My name is Shari Rose and I created Blurred Bylines in an effort to surface marginalized perspectives and experiences that can slip below the radar. Blurred Bylines provides long-form posts about American history and politics with an emphasis on justice, race, gender, and triumphs of the human spirit. 

As this country continues to undergo massive social, political, and cultural changes, many of which put American democracy itself on the line, it can be easy to forget how we got here. But  the history of the United States often informs what our future holds.

That’s why I try to share stories of individuals who went up against the racist, sexist, homophobic, and abelist structures that sought to keep them disenfranchised. They fought for the right to achieve an American Dream that’s only reserved for the powerful, despite what our history textbooks told us. 

The stories I write usually involve individuals or social movements that are uniquely American in their struggles, triumphs, and challenges. And many have had their histories erased over the ensuing generations that favor keeping the powerful comfortable. But despite a long history of efforts to paralyze, silence, and dismantle growing justice movements and progressive ideals in America, those in power can’t help but notice that progress pushes back. 

Sure, my voice is just one in millions of millions. But when the same ideas are repeated by millions more, real change starts to break through the noise. And if I have the ability to help raise those voices and perspectives to a wider audience through Blurred Bylines, I’m going to keep doing that. 

Progress doesn’t march in a straight line, but it’s relentless all the same.

About Shari Rose

I graduated with a degree in journalism, but quickly took to search engine optimization (SEO) after working for different newspapers. I was born and raised in the greater Los Angeles area, and came to live in a handful of different states before returning to California. Sometimes I play guitar, but not well enough to play for anyone but my dog.
