What is pro Black?  It is to invest in Black people, in every area of their lives. 

What is Black pride?  It is Black people exuding confidence, joy, and self-love!

What is Black humanity? It is to eliminate all violence and oppression against Black people everywhere.

Say it Loud, I'm Black and I'm Proud!

Black Girl Magic!

Black Lives Matter!
