At the moment, I can't help but think... how would the acts of the States be written and received? Telling OUR story to the next generation offers a voice that maybe too raw for a textbook. Also, visual effects are relevant now more than ever. Witnessing LIVE or viewing a "playback" keeps the narrative organic and relatable. Although, such evidence does not always play in the favor of the innocent but that chat is for another time.
To the Black Man, our nation owes it to you to have a history lesson JUST on your being, trials and triumphs alike! Which will require a panel of black men... from different demographic backgrounds, age, criminal encounters, educational status, sexual orientation, might I say political standpoint and much more.
I am a PROUD black woman, through and through! Yet, that does not mean I feel any other race is less than. Simply means, I recognize what my people has brought to the table and still contributing to the feast of history... willingly and unwillingly.
I'm a wife
I'm a daughter
I'm a bonus mom
I'm a aunt
I'm a cousin
I'm a sister
I'm a friend of a BLACK MAN and my breathing is AFFECTED! I do worry about you... when you're not in my sight or the sight of a loved one. Fact is, your presence seems to be a threat to many.
Daily, I leggit think... what next? How can one process the current without mentally armoring up for the next!! That thought is not limited to the worries a black man may face but being a black woman in general.
So... back to my original question, how will this season be written and received in American History?
