Loved this snippet @marytjp!! Yes, @lavernetoombs always introduced us to, and made sure we knew the importance of culture, activism, volunteerism and education, forever thankful for that! What a great snippet for @hgtv to highlight during #blackhistorymonth. πŸ€ŽπŸ–€ Repost from @marytjp The question was, "Share a memory or learning from Black History Month that resonates with you today?" My influences growing up were Dominique Dawes, Oprah, Storm ( X-Men) and My Mom. All very strong and determined Black women that have made an huge impact on who I am today. I'm am so incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to share one of the many memories of my Mom fighting to educate others about Black History. She used to have us volunteer, march, stuff envelopes and even walk door to door. When I was in Elementary school we participated in Social Studies fairs where she MADE me present Black History. Our parents were not perfect, but they made sure we were proud of who we were and to never be ashamed of where we came from. History is also not perfect, but we must continue to share our experiences and learn from them so we ALL can grow. I look forward to the day we are able to celebrate Black History for what it is...American History. #blackhistory #strongwomen #strongblackwoman #myblackisbeautiful #cocoainnoco #cocoainfoco #cocoaandcompany #brownupyourfeed #shareblackstories #melaninqueen #blackgirlmagic #fortcollins #coloradolife #colorado #mountainlife #coloradoliving #visitfortcollins #visitcolorado #visitftcollins #lovefortcollins #loveland #greeley #visitloveland #longmont #denver #303 #redrocks #hgtv
