February strikes Black History Month, a time to celebrate black culture, drive black empowerment, highlight black success and salute black heroes. It began in a way of paying homage to important people and events in the history of the African Diaspora.
Black people have faced many challenges over the years and we slowly but surely triumph. However, one of the biggest issue we face in today’s society is Colorism.
The year 2017 is at its end and I must admit that this has been the worst year for me. I’m still grateful for plenty things that had happened to me. Some I could do without but I’ll take everything as a lesson. So glad I got the chance to end it with my mom who came by for the holiday and my day 1 chick, my best friend (Dutchess – in the picture with me)
The year started off good, with me landing my first official job in January then visiting my parents in the Bahamas in summer. But those were pretty much the high points of my year.
2016/2017 were the years of realization for me but I will definitely make things right and take 2018. This year it’s all about my happiness, my well being, my stability and no negativity.
