Today i was reminded of a quote from maya angelou, "i come as one but i stand as ten thousand".
stepping onto the oakland plantation in the s***e cabin was surreal. i felt so proud to come from such strength and resilience. and even more aware of my responsibility to fulfill my ancestors wildest dreams. i'm honored to be descendants of not slaves but the kings and queens who persevered in spite of slavery. standing in the house that was built from the hands of my people is an empowerment that simply can't be expressed.
