For me, being Black is…

Being resilient despite what we go through,

Beautifully Black. 

Being Black is knowing your role and responsibilities,

Beautifully Black. 

Embodying the strength of generations that paved the way for our future,

Beautifully Black. 

Being strong yet vulnerable,

Having gorgeous cocoa skin,

Having the experience and history of struggle, allowing me to have a beautiful perspective on life,

Beautifully Black. 

Being part of a brotherhood/sisterhood,

Beautifully Black. 

Having stories woven through our blood, our DNA,

Beautifully Black. 

Being part of a community,

Having that pride that carries you through life,

There is a lot of joy in being Black. Our DEPTH, BREADTH, BEAUTY and LIGHT.

Being Black is a multitude of embodying cultures, wisdom, struggles, pride, and joy. I love being unapologetically me! Beautifully Black.
