One Day We Will Be The Black History Others Celebrate And Study

Lately I've been doing less writing and more dreaming. I've been promoting a lot more of myself and a lot less of others. I've been trying to convince others that I'm just as great as the people they admire.


Because one day there will be someone my age. It could be next year, 20 years from now, or even 50 years from now. They'll be studying their black history, or possibly looking up the black authors of the last few years that have released good writing that touches their soul like I did when I was younger. One of my experiences involved a book that featured short stories from black authors that started from the 60's to the present. They'll research and they will find me.

In "Woman Manifested: A Poetic Tale," they'll get an idea of a young single woman's development into society in the early 21st century. They'll read a book that shows how some people approached family, friendships, and intimate relationships during this time period. However, from reading this book they'll also know why there will be big gaps in our history. In the introduction I wrote about how my great grandma's life was not documented for anyone to research. See this is important because we're just learning about the women of Hidden Figures, which means our grandchildren and great grandchildren will be uninformed about so much.

This is my start, but one day it'll be someone's black history. It's the same for you.
