“Always remember that you are a black girl, and everyday you exist in your body without apologizing is activism.” – Raven Taylor
While performing in the 2014 National Poetry Slam semi-finals, Raven Taylor gives a lesson in strength to black girls. In her passionate spoken word performance, Taylor speaks on what it’s like to be a black girl and advises on how to navigate through daily struggles and microaggressions.
She demands that black women embrace their blackness as a source of power and use that power to hold onto oneself.
I promise it’s worth a listen.
