So this was the first song that I heard this morning and it made me feel absolutely sensational!
The song is entitled “Black Gold” by Esparanza Spalding. Don’t get it twisted because this ain’t a song about oil in Texas. This is a song about the TRUEST Black Gold, Black People.
In a world that constantly devalues your worth because of your blackness it is always good to indulge counter-programming that affirms it.
Seriously, I feel even prouder of being black than I did five minutes ago!
With that said I think I’m going to make positive Black affirmations a regular feature on this forum.
I love Black people.
Black people are radiant.
I definitely want this to be a space where that magic is celebrated.
You are Black gold my people, truly.
