obamasI know it’s not just me.  We feel it, we talk about it, post memes about our emotions.  The mourning of the loss of our 44th president is palpable. But the esteem of having even witnessed a black man as president is still lastingly blissful.

Making my own correlation here but I don’t think it’s a coincidence that during the same time we’ve had a black first family we’ve had a rise in our natural hair movement.  Regardless of the texture of of the hair of our beloved Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia, the culture they represented and reflected shone a light onto the facets of black culture and self acceptance. May the journey to acceptance, self knowledge and truth continue for us all.
