It's something about the month of February. I don't know if it's because it is "Black History Month," , or the fact that this is the month that my grandmother was born in and died in. Whatever the case may be, it will always be special to me. I cry a little, wear my fro a little prouder, reminisce on the good times, re-visit history lessons on the Freedom Riders and The Black Panther Party, and fall in love with my race all over again. February is my pick me up month, my you can do anything month, my the sky is the limit month, my you are awesome month, my freedom month, but I digress.
I am ashamed to say that I don't know much about Coretta Scott King or Betty Shabazz, but I am willing to learn.will. Behind every great man is an even greater woman, may the legacies of these women and the sacrifices they made be inspiration my generation.
Peace and Love,
