Happy Black History Month

To the black women who have given us voices on TV. 

To the ones who are loved unequivocally

And the ones who deserved love, but never received it

To the ones we lost too soon

And the ones who are still finding their voice

To the ones who kick ass

And the ones who give us hope for the future

We celebrate the intelligence, beauty, and humanity portrayed on screen and demand more

“black women were created of
brown sugar and warm honey.
the sweetest thing to bless the earth.
be wary of anyone who tells you otherwise.”

I fight like a girl. I fight like a girl who refuses to be a victim. I fight like a girl who’s tired of being ignored, humored, beaten or raped. I fight like a girl who’s sick of not being taken seriously. I fight like a girl who’s been pushed too far. I fight like a girl who offers and demands respect. I fight like a girl who has a lifetime of anger, strength, and pride pent up in her girly body. I fight like a girl who fights back. (insp)

What she was finding also was how one book led to another, doors kept opening wherever she turned and the days weren’t long enough for the reading she wanted to do.
