The Birth of B.Brave
I vividly remember feeling an immense sense of pride as a 17 year old college freshman taking my first Black Studies course and learning about important Black writers, activists, and change makers.
I discovered that my existence as an American did not start with slavery and end with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. But the more I learned, the more I felt robbed of my legacy. I had been taught about the American Revolution and all the wars, but there were only White men in those lessons.
Sadly, Black people had been erased from my education. It's important to me that all children truly see themselves and envision great possibilities for their lives.
