Silence is an answer. In fact, I think silence is the loudest response one can receive. It has been a silent year. People have spoken to me without saying a word. At first, I was offended. Then, I realized that it is time to define myself, by myself, for myself. Which was humbling and empowering all at once. I am Efe Magazine and all that it stands for.
The colour of my skin does not dictate who I can inspire. “Black girl magic” is a thing. So why I am still in question? Have I not earned my placed? Are my words or my intentions unclear? I didn’t realize I was the problem. But let me ask you this… If I only connect with the black community, what harm is there if you connect with them too?
