I will be honest.
I have some ambivalence about Black History Month
I always have.
I’ve always hated the fact that America gave us the shortest month of the year.
For me, black people and our history are to be celebrated 365 days a year 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.
America’s continued failure to treat Black Americans as equal citizens of the country their ancestors built is one of the many reasons I chose to move abroad.
Our ancestors built America for free. Our contributions to culture music and every positive aspect of American life is undeniable.
So as I thought about what I wanted to say through my store about Black history month it is simply this:
It’s not a month it’s a celebration of the US 365 days a year 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.
Because Black history IS American history every single day and WE keep making history every single day. And by we I especially mean Black Women.
From turning the tide in the most consequential election of my lifetime to finally getting a Black Woman on the Supreme Court.
We keep making history.
If you agree, grab your T-shirt sweatshirt or mug and tell everybody else.
