Name Three Black Women To Thank And Why

How much do I give and what is given back to me I turn? And you want me to give more? For nothing? Black women aren’t your mammies. We owe you nothing. You owe us everything. Via: Black Owned Everything

Black History Month 2022

Even though I’m black everyday I understand spotlighting culture is essential to representation. Living in a bubble of elite schooling I was ignorant in believing black history was apart of everyone’s curriculum; who didn’t learn about Marcus Garvey, Pan Africanism, Nat Turner…? Turns out low income schools composed of predominantly colored people don’t, and their reading list is composed of predominantly white male authors. It’s as if they’re trying to keep us uneducated…can you sense the sarcasm? That’s a systemic racism joke, which is nothing to laugh about.

I love being black, we age like fine wine (black don’t crack, in my early 30’s, but look 17 sans makeup), our spirit is unbreakable and despite adversity our humor is A1 nigga. We make revel in joy. Joy so contagious we’re the foundation of social media memes and comedy. I mean black Twitter is a force of it’s own. What are your favorite things about being black, or black culture? What’s the last book you read written by a black author? How do you celebrate black culture and it’s contributions? Were you taught black history growing up? How many people can you identify in the above photo (I can identify everyone)? Do you have black friends? Creator: Culture And Collection

Black History Month 2021

Black History Month has commenced, also my birthday month which makes total sense. Stop taking from a culture you don’t respect, be gone and embrace your own. How do you honor BHM (even though our history is everyday)? Via:Nnoorxo

Billy Porter BB

To close out Black History Month on this auspicious leap day, Billy Porter peeps. Thank you for your fluidity, thank you for being brave enough to broadcast it from the tops of mountains. Representation is important, especially for men of color who are given less freedom to be fluid. Black culture can be very critical and rigid regarding gender roles. Take a bow. Which look is your red carpet steeze? Photos: Billy Porter
