“I am not tragically colored.
….I do not weep at the world—
I am too busy sharpening my oyster knife.” – Zora Neale Hurston

“…we thought back then it was my hair that was nappy
so we—trying to make it all right—straightened the wrong kitchen.”
These few words make all the sense in the world to me at this point in time. Make sure you’ve chosen the correct road ahead of schedule. Spread love.
