Today, I celebrate freedom.
I celebrate my ancestors for their resilience.
I celebrate my contemporaries for their resistance.
Recently I made a short film of a piece I wrote. It speaks to the threats put upon Black people from without (systemic racism) and within (generations of trauma). I felt today to be the appropriate time to share as we recognize and commemorate our history.
Please visit my YouTube channel to watch the entire film and feel free to share it with anyone you feel might be interested. Thanks for watching!
