This Black History Month Motivational Moment was inspired by Carol Coakley after she told me at church that she looked forward to see my next Bow Tie. As soon as I walked into Friendship Missionary Baptist Church for service and saw everyone decked out in their African attire I knew that I had to come correct and pay my ancestors respect.
In the word Black you have B and Lack. Many of us Lack because we don’t know how great we can B. In the word History there is Hi and Story. In order to make History you have to say Hi to your Story.
When I went to the store to find a pattern to make my tie for today the clerk was asked by another customer if they had a pattern that would fit Black History. After only 30 seconds of searching she gave up and said for something like that we would have to order it. I told the other customer don’t worry about what someone else couldn’t find for you because before I entered the store I looked into the word African.
In the word African you have AFR for Always Find Resources with I and Can because every time I say “I Can” I Always Find Resources.
This is just a Moment so put on your Bow Tie and make whatever you do a Movement.
