Done Being the Token Black Girl

Farmington Hills, MI.

I grew up in a place where Black people felt they made it. A suburban community where the majority of residents were Black, employed, and thriving. It was wonderful growing up in this setting but it created unrealistic expectations for what the “real world” was and what life is like for the majority of people who are Black in this country. When I did wake up to take a look around at all of the injustices towards Blacks there is no way I can ever go back to sleep.
