I’m always grateful to discover beautiful light, powerful intellect, and compassionate hearts here in the blogosphere. ‘Iz.in.spired’ is for me an exciting new voice as this piece will attest to!
Let all people, of all races celebrate Black History however they would like to, if they would like to, whenever they would like to.
I would love it if this month was not Black History Month. Yes, I am Black British. No, I do not hate being black. But it’s ridiculous to even try and celebrate the massive spectrum of black history, even in a whole lifetime of Octobers.
I’m a hybrid of sorts. A Nigerian-English fusion. I am completely British and completely Nigerian. But, at the same time I am not entirely either. I hope that if I can explain the complexity of my culture, you can understand why Black History Month is a laughable way to celebrate me or other black people.
