My favorite part of being a black woman is my ability to meet other black women and feel instant kinship. Maybe it’s because I’m unassuming and approachable. Maybe it’s because I’m an older sister and cousin to many. Maybe it’s because they see themselves in me. Either way, the ease that I’ve been able to meet other young beautiful black women and hang out with them is just one perk of having all this melanin. I met a cool group of young ladies at Carnival and was invited to a birthday party the next weekend and it felt a lot like home. Music playing, everyone outside eating, got to meet Aunts and Uncles and Samba in the street. It was a great feeling. It was the feeling I came here wondering if I could find. kinship. family.
it was awesome.
