Day 21! SAY IT LOUD! I AM BLACK AND I AM PROUD! Today and until the very last day of Black History Month…I’m closing out with a celebration of BLACK GIRL MAGIC! I will feature a woman (from the past or present) that embodies Black Girl Magic. Why is Black Girl Magic so important? The Black Woman is underrepresented, criticized, rejected, and humiliated more than any other race of women. We are often overshadowed by our men…and while I love the Black Man…I cannot…I will not…and I shall not dim my light…MY MAGIC…for him! We, Black Women, must teach Black Girl Magic to our little girls…from birth. She can only break barriers if she’s aware of the divine spirit and strength that runs through her veins…at creation! First up in my series…MISTY COPELAND! ?? From my perspective…this is Misty: I moved to a beat of devastation and kept up with the world…shocking everyone! Surpassing my competitors! While they underestimated me…I learned to only compete with MYSELF! Movement for movement…there…always within me…was this feeling that I could be anything I wanted to. That feeling…my dear…was BLACK GIRL MAGIC! ?? #thankyou #mistycopeland ~KJM on Temptation Tuesday!
