“You are Black history in the making.” So many people say this to me as a compliment. It’s supposed to be empowering, but instead it’s just daunting. I guess I’m the reluctant hero type. This Black History Month, I’m actively working on not being Black history in the making or even partaking in “Black excellence.” I’m just going to do my best to exist, as radical as that may be.

For Black people only-- How can you live more authentically? #MightyBlackVoices #BlackHistoryMonth #mymightylife
