It’s a different experience living in America. There are moments when I feel like since I’m not descended from slaves I have no business talking about certain things.
However, when I was very young, I’m realized that when I walk down the street I’m a black woman. No one is going to stop me, ask…
There are also first-gens who are descended from slaves (like Jamaican-Americans).
