As I came up with the traits for this tee, I thought of my mother, my step-mother, my aunt, my good girlfriends, Michelle Obama; sis, I thought of ALL of us. It is nearly impossible for us to explain what it means to be a Black woman. The fact is, it's quite indescribable. How do you capture ALL that embodies a Black woman? What words do you use to describe the burdens, the pain, the triumphs, the sacrifices?
After I thought of words, I asked some of my closest friends what words came to their mind when they thought of a Black woman. My plan was come up with a longer list of words and then narrow them down to the smaller amount that I would actually use. Nope! To my surprise, those same words kept coming up from one person to the next. That's how I knew, THESE words were IT! These would be my Traits of a Black Woman.
Of course, there are a few million more words that would perfectly describe a Black woman, but ummmm... how big do you want your shirt, sis? lol I thought these 7 simple, yet powerful, words would be a great start. I hope you agree.
