He Had a Dream

Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream that “[his] four little children [would] one day live in a nation where they [would] not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

While we’ve made significant progress towards making his dream a reality, nearly six decades after he delivered that speech, we’re still not fully there yet.

What a shame.

This past year was eye-opening for me, to say the least.  Social injustice is still very present in our country, and I have spent a lot of time delving into it, learning what it means to have white privilege, and discussing very difficult topics with our kids to ensure that they're aware of it, too.  

I started to pay much more attention to black-owned businesses this past year, and on this Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, I wanted to share a handful of my very favorite ladies of color on Instagram.  

Tabitha Brown @iamtabithabrown (Recipes& Motivation)

Danielle Coke @ohhappydani (Art & Words)

Kay @onceupona1912 (Home Design & DIY)

Luna @swaggaismything (Fashion)

All of these ladies inspire me daily, and I hope you’ll find them as inspiring as I do.

Happy Monday, y’all.  <3

  4. I am currently listening to his Two Americas speech and it is astounding how his words could still describe today's conditions. We have so far to go, still! Thank you for sharing this, going to follow all those lovely ladies. On to listening to more of his words. Enjoy your day!
