I Am Shattered Pieces Scattered Black

I’m not sure what I would consider myself. The only thing that I know is that I am brown-skinned, but light-skinned. Many believe I am mixed with another race or other race(s), but my parents are both Black. I’m not really sure what it means to be Black or where I come from originally besides America. The issue of race is interesting because I’m not sure what it means to be me- Black/African-American. I’m sure my ancestors came from Africa, but I’m not sure. I’ve never heard anything from my parents or grandparents about Africa. All I know and all we know is that we are Black. Whatever that means!
