Day 26! SAY IT LOUD! I AM BLACK AND I AM PROUD! Next up on the BLACK GIRL MAGIC series is…Ida B. wells! ?? I featured Ida on Day 6 as the Black Feminist. She’s back on my count up…because she’s just so inspirational! Generation after generation…BLACK GIRL MAGIC must take a stand on social justice issues. Even in 2017, Ida’s work and words ring true. This is Ida…from my perspective: They want me to stay silent about the atrocities around me. They want me to stay silent about truths…buried truths! They essentially want me to me to write their truth. I cannot…no I shall not..abandon my people. I shall not turn lynchings into justice. I shall condemn it. I will not turn a blind eye to Black People being killed…just for being Black. I will write about our truth. Our flesh burning under the so called Constitution as no one bats an eye. ?So I wrote and I told our stories. Not because I felt I was courageous but because someone had to…someone had to say no! No more hangings…no more killings…no more murders of Black People in the land of the so called NOW free. Someone had to document the persecutions. So I did… And that my dear…is the essence of the bold and daring journey…we now call BLACK GIRL MAGIC! #idabwells #blackgirlmagic #thankyou #blackhistorymonth ~KJM on Serenity Sunday?
