To keep it 💯 I absolutely fucked with the movie
During so-called “Black History Month,” I’m challenging you all to make a personal commitment to watch every single one of these.
We cannot reserve humane treatment for people who fit the description of a Huxtable family. Nor can we reserve it for men and women who, though Black, meet the favored Eurocentric aesthetics. It shouldn’t take three degrees, a six-figure income, homeownership, and an extensive vocabulary just for the possibility of earning human decency from our fellow man.
Africa, let us also remember and celebrate our true history
For too long we’ve lived with the lie that Africa is the “dark continent” and had always needed a helping hand from Western influences to bring herself out of “development.” When in fact, it was Africa who first brought the world out of the darkness.
The first people to “colonize” or “discover” any land inside and outside of Africa were indeed Black people.
