Honoring Black Magical Women for Black History Month

Black women are dreamers & non negotiable risk takers, resilient by design and fearless beyond the stereotypes. Black women have always been the force in any movement, from women like Mary Curry, Gwen Morris, Clara Smith, to modern-day Queens, such as Janice Sumler, Keshia Thomas,  Kimberly Tapscott-Munson, Tiffany Magnum and our forever head queen in charge, Laneesha Senegal who effortlessly aims to promote and influence her fellow black women. 

In honor of the countless women beyond the headlines doing the work, everyday without the Fanfare. Women who spent decades helping restore school systems and communities of color. Women who spend countless hours fighting for Equal Housing opportunities, restorative justice, and every day opportunities to change the lives of families everyday.

Through years of local commitment and civic engagement, these women are trailblazing, forcing a light and blueprint for women to come. Through various fields and communities, these women are enhancing educational & political systems, representing minorities and proving misrepresentation wrong, these inspired women are bridging generational gaps, staying true to the WORK & demonstrating what it looks like, to change the game through dedication. 

Black magical women may seem new to you, just know the power within, is rooted at its core & our journeys are predestined. Must we always remember the women before us, that paved the way for the trenches we endure. As the work was done, the work is to be continued. These women, are keeping the magic in rotation, fulfilling the cultural obligation at an all time high.

Don't settle for average. Bring your best to the moment. Then, whether it fails or succeeds, at least you know you gave all you had. We need to live the best that's in us.
