I am of African, Jamaican, American descent and a whole lot of other stuff – who was fortunate enough to be born in America. Some people will look me and see my blackness, and look no further. Some people will see me ‘as a mere woman,’ and look no further. Others will see ‘an American,’ and look no further. Pity them all.
I am both: I am American and I am an African American, proud of it, baby!
