It’s okay to be black, Promise

Maureen Shaw,
Durham, NC.

Thank you for doing this.
This is a photo of my mother’s family, this is the reason why I wrote it’s okay to be black. I look at it and feel so proud of this photo. We let ourselves believe we are people with shattered history. I’ve discovered this not always the case and if so it’s not the end of the world.
