As Black history month comes to a close I wanted to post something reflecting the experience of the average Black person in America. Some of our experiences and obstacles aren’t reflected in numbers and statistics, but in feelings, emotions and stories. Inspired by CNN’s “The First Day I Realized I was Black,” I asked some DC media personalities a question that maybe should be asked more and shared with those of different cultures to further understand the African-American experience: When did you realize you were Black?
Thanks to Tony Redz and Ashleigh Demi for participating, being open and honest about racism and self-awareness.
