"Because you are who you are, your future gonna be happy and bright."- The Color Purple
In the midst of hate, separation and fear we must choose to stand together. Together in our similarities and diversities, standing strong on the morals of those who came before us. Together in pride and love, in acceptance of who we are and who we are destined to become.
"It was like black seeing black for the first time, shiny blue black people looking real fine."- The Color Purple
I am thankful!
Thankful that I'm allowed to grace the stage with my brothers and sisters, a stage that was never designed with us in mind. Thankful that through the words of Alice Walker we can be a voice to the struggle. A voice that portrays strength and dignity. A voice that tells us that despite it all, we will overcome. A voice that allows the sweet sounds of peace to overshadow that of turmoil. For these things I am thankful.
Today I stand in my freedom with all of my melanin brothers and sisters proclaiming victory for all. We have a voice!
No matter who you are, you have a voice.
