Always paying respect to the greats who came before us, allowing the opportunity to great ourselves. I love black history month and I love learning about the astounding achievements my people have accomplished, but the amazement doesn’t stop in our history. We are breaking barriers, and achieving new heights everyday. I started this series to pay homage to those before while encouraging you that your history has yet to be made.
