Today I can unashamedly say that I am proud of who I am.
I accept that my ‘Black’ is not is your Black.
My ‘Black’ is beautiful, unique, wise, and gracefully strong; my ‘Black’ is my own.
I am thankful for the many shoulders of my ancestors whom which I stand upon for my successes today.
Happy Black History Month.
