New York Liberty players took to social media this week to share their thoughts and experience on a range of issues. Feb. 1 marked the start of Black History Month, which has some Libs thinking about the significance of celebrating diversity and heroes who have fought for civil rights for Americans.
There was still a lighter side as well. Tina Charles was able to attend Friday night’s Knicks game at The Garden, and meet up with fellow UConn Husky Kemba Walker courtside. Bec Allen paid a visit to Hungary and took in the sites (and cold temps), and international competition is still going strong for several Libs abroad.
Take a look at some of the top social media shares from the past week!

In the wake of President Trump's Executive Orders against citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries, today is Fred Korematsu Day. Mr. Korematsu became a fugitive when President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, which authorized that all individuals of Japanese ancestry were to be removed from their homes and forced to live in internment camps following the attack on Pearl Harbor. Mr. Korematsu is known for advocating for civil liberties for all communities. I applaud the individuals in our nation for uniting and following Mr. Korematsu lead and providing hope for those impacted.
