Black History Month is a time to love and accept ourselves, especially when the world doesn’t always honor us. It’s a time to celebrate our intellect, strength, culture and everything that makes us magical. But for me, Black History Month should extend well beyond the month of February. We can celebrate all year by supporting Black-owned business, uplifting each other and being undeniably strong.
