Since it is the debatably infamous black history month and I am a womanist, I am excited to present my latest series titled, "Femme Fierce." Twice a week, for the next month I will be posting some of the most influential black women, that contributed to the feminist ideology and are making power moves towards the progression of African American women. I know that some may take black history month as an insult, and you're all entitled to your reasoning as to why; however, I'm choosing to take this special time out to celebrate black women during this month of acknowledgment. I am celebrating the women who made history and changed lives, by being themselves unapologetically. I am celebrating brave women, strong and independent women, women with attitudes and mouths that refuse to be silenced. I am celebrating the women who support their husbands, brothers and sons, through any trials and tribulations, because without those women we wouldn't have our lion-hearted kings. I am celebrating the women who have to play mom and dad, and make a way when the road is unclear. I am celebrating black girl magic, because it is the most mesmerizing and powerful asset we have. I am celebrating black women, because we don't always get praised for the hours we put in, not only to keeping our loved ones together, but to keeping ourselves together too through any type of adversity.
