  1. Being black means I am proud of my color but humble in spirit. I realize that my color should not and does not dictate who I am but I am the dictator or the designer of my life. Not thinking too highly of myself but raising up my head high in every way, wherever I am, in whatever situation I find myself. Not looking down on people but helping to add value to their lives and the community at large. Helping myself to be the best I can be as the other skin color neither want black colored to succeed nor be focused. I know that I am wonderfully and fearfully made, BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL, BLACK IS OUTSTANDING AND BLACK OUTSHINES THEM ALL !

  2. Being black to me means knowing I have an inner strength that allows me to persevere through and adapt in the toughest times. I may fall sometimes but I’ll rise each time as my ancestors demonstrated.
