I thought protest marches were no longer effective (she says, tongue in cheek). Too old fashioned some people think. Something your grandma and grandpa did back in the 60s that won't work in 2019. Ahhh...but it takes courage and guts to get out there and protest against something that works against you and you can't trust. Take note mainland Americans. What's the old saying? "Where there is a will, there is a way." Trust and believe...ain't nothing new under the sun.

Feeling good today fam...just been reading a couple of books. I think Dennis Kimbro's "Daily Motivations for African American Success" is one of the best motivational books on the market. This book has motivation for each day of the year on each page and all of these relate to your own Blackness. No matter what you're experiencing there's something in that book you could draw from. ✊
