Word on the street is Black folk in America are doomed. But, we know a different story!

For today’s Mobilize Monday your task is simple-soak in all the love, power, strength, wisdom, and joy in the following quotes by Black women. Be inspired by them.

After you’ve finished reading the quotes, stop and look in the mirror and CELEBRATE YOU!
