"Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness."

"Yes, the reclamation of the history of black people
in this country is paramount in its importance
because while you can’t really blame the
conqueror for writing history his own way, you
can certainly debate it. There’s a great deal of
obfuscation and distortion and erasure, so that the
presence of the heartbeat of black people has been
systematically annihilated in many, many ways and
the job of recovery is ours."
Toni Morrison on reclaiming History (via deadinmotion)
Yes, yes, and yes.
