Black History Month

I will celebrate this month and have been. Remember every day is black history, not just a

month. This is a month to take the time and reminisce on the people that took risks to stand up

for what's right and were willing to suffer any consequence. I'm thankful, I thank the Lord, but I

know we still have long ways to go with fighting stereotypes and generalizations brought upon

us. I am willing to fight them. I always feel like I was born in the wrong generation, I wish I was

born around the time Martin Luther King was being a voice for all people and when Josephine

Baker was standing next to him as well, trying to unite the people to take a stand. I dreamed of

being there, my oh my how far we've come and America as well.

All this month I'll be posting quotes and history.
-take care everyone.
