On the eve of launching this blog, my eyes were gleaming with happiness as I watched the 10th anniversary of Black Girls Rock on BET. I was reminded of how proud I was to be a black woman. In times past, as a black woman I was perplexed by the reality of what it meant not only to be black, but to also be a woman. But, last night I received an “aha” moment! Maya Angelou once said, “ I feel sorry for everybody that’s not a black woman.” That statement is so true. The anomaly of being black and a woman is a road only a black woman can travel. We share in our struggles, our pain, our laughter, and our victories. The common thread we share in this tapestry of womanhood is indeed a beautiful thing. So, as my best friend and I launch this blog, we are humbled and full of gratitude for the continuous journey, we are taking. This is our perspective of fashion, relationships, and just life. But, its also a perspective of two black women on a journey, paved by so many before us. Black girls rock!
