#BlackHero (Heroes) – As black history month comes to a close I’ve really enjoyed being able to share just a handful of the individuals that I consider MY black heroes. I try my best to work hard everyday understanding that I must fall in love with the process of trying to be great. None of us are perfect and success is relative. What my heroes have in common are their abilities to commit to something greater than themselves, courage to speak out against social injustice, be leaders and walk with pride. As I feel like I’ve just begun unpacking the treasures of my identity and embracing them in this wonderful world; there is so much to learn, so far to go and so much space to grow. Thank you for your love, energy and support.

Also the ability to change his ways and speak loudly and truthfully about his own pitfalls, growth and enlightenment. Legendary…
Passion, one of a kind, genuine, love, peace, happiness..

She’ll only shift for a moment, but she’ll do her little number. It will be the end for most people, especially those who are ill-prepared“
