As I searched for scarves an elder sistah stopped me and volunteered her testimony regarding hair loss. She came from the same kind of family where hair was life and there was plenty of it. However, she forced me to consider what is self-worth and beauty. She took my number, yes this complete stranger, and became a part of my support system along with a some of my elders. I would see brothers on the street that would call me beautiful in my scarf, and in my yard as I swept. I can admit that I still miss my hair. However, I am surviving and finding a new understanding of living. “I am not my hair” actually has meaning to me personally. I couldn’t see the rest of me for that one area…now I’m looking at a more complete person.

I need my children to know standing up for what you believe in can be dangerous, but not having any dignity is worse. I need them to acknowledge the fight in Dr King, and the principle. School could have talked more about principle and could have used his commemoration to discuss taking a stance for what’s right. However, in a school with a majority of white students and faculty that might be uncomfortable because this discussion means acknowledging black people have been, and are, harmed by white people in this country. I never want my children to be delusional about words like unity and equality. It was spoken on as if these are things that have been accomplished in this country, and we know better. I will own my children education about blackness, and black leadership for their sake…and mine.

They wouldn’t understand what it means to commemorate the life of someone who was selfless to the cause of seeing justice in this country. This administration has not heart…and the soul of it is foul. America has to open its eyes completely to what we’ve always been…because it has given birth to where we are right now. Maybe that is something we should contemplate as we think on the life and legacy of Dr. King.
