Black People I Want To Hug



Black History month is hands down the best month of the year. It’s dedicated to the strong men and women OF COLOR that have helped make so many things possible for so many other people of color.

I’ve been compiling a list of black men and women that I want to hug. All of these people are celebrities, all of these people have had to overcome adversity purely because of their skin color. As someone who will always have to get over an extra hurdle because of a little extra melanin, I want to thank these people. For making it easier for people like me to do things in the future.

    You know me- if you ask for a comment I’m likely to give you obey!
    For a blog to be something I’d return to, if like to see mor substance. Something to make me laugh, cry, or give me pause to think. A (much) shorter list with a few reasons why they made the list would have been more interesting to me…
    Love you!!!
