This was a beautiful story and I LOVED your perspectives on what it’s like being Black settings for you. Most people equate possible experiences with us to being around extreme violence or associate being with Blacks and fear.
Your essay dispels the myths and provides heartfelt insight into what it’s like being in our world. People can never hear enough stories like these. Black relationships shouldn’t just be transactional or confrontational. We need meaningful engagement with each other to survive successfully. Plus it’s fun. Crossing cultures is so much fun when done in the right settings.
I can’t wait to read more stories. I’m going to link this to my story. I want people reading to see it can be done.
Thank you for walking the walk and leading by example.
