And so we rise……

And so we rise………..

Good morning beautiful humans, happy Friday! We made it, hooray! Thank you for spending part of your morning with me or evening depending on where you live in this great big world! Welcome to Life with Lane; my life through words, pictures, and food! Come on in………

I’ve been working on this for quite awhile. I was trying to make sure I had my wording together. I also needed to do some research. My blogs usually aren’t this long but for this one I’ll need a little bit more of your time. I promise it’s worth the read.

I wanted to make sure I do my people proud. Sometimes I think us African Americans/black people aren’t appreciated as much as we should be. Please understand that my people literally came from nothing, some of us born into slavery, and became one of the best things ever! We rose from the ashes…….and became greatness

Harriet Tubman

Born into slavery

Fredrick Douglass

Born into slavery

Robert Smalls

Born into slavery

Jack Johnson

Defiance at its FINEST! Mr. Jack Johnson

Marcus Garvey

There aren’t many people better in history than Marcus Garvey.

Dr. King

He’s probably the most inspiring person in the history of America. Gave the best speeches and never once faltered

Oprah Winfrey

I’m actually not a fan of hers but she has done great things and she’s a self made billionaire. A self made African American female billionaire.

President Barack Obama

He needs no introduction

My people are inspiring and forgive me for being biased but we are EVERYTHING! No matter what you try to do to us, we always come out on top. Literally nothing can break us. We were brought here to be slaves and look how far we’ve come. We still have along way to go. However I’d like to say we’re pretty impressive!

We’re more than just phenomenal athletes, we’re doctors, scientists, engineers, architects, philanthropist, authors, and so much more! We are the people that built America! We’re anything but lazy as many would have you believe! I love my people, I am Black History 💕

Thank you for reading my blog! Like, comment, subscribe! Have a wonderful blessed day and always be kind! Continue to practice social distancing, wash your hands, and don’t forget about your neighbor! #onelove
