It's Black History Month and I'm celebrating by launching my new project: One Black Voice. This is a diary, brain dump, or whatever have you, where I talk about my individual perspective on the happenings of the world.
I wanted to launch this project during Black History Month because it felt appropriate. As a black woman living in America, I feel like I'm a part of a sisterhood with an unspoken yet strong bond. This is because of the unifying nature of black culture. However, that doesn't mean we all think the same or that we all want the same things. Just like any other group, we are all special in our own ways and we each have a variety of identities experiences.
"Black People are Not a Monolith"
I called this blog One Black Voice because I wanted a space to talk about my personal thoughts on different topics and how they relate to my personal experience. The thoughts and opinions I will write about here will be unique to me. My thoughts will be different from another black person's. This is just one black voice in a sea of many. I'm building my own table to sit at and I'm writing about whatever I want.
If you read this far, I just want to say thank you. Every pair of eyes on this project equals a level of support that is greatly appreciated. I hope you stay tuned!
Happy Black History Month.
