People often ask what it's like to be a daughter of #MalcolmX and #DrBettyShabazz? I was raised with an over abundance of love and encouragement. I was raised #Proud to be of African ancestry, #Proud to be a woman, and #Proud to be a Muslim. That #SelfLove is paramount. Before you can love anyone else, you must first love yourself. And that each of us is an extension of one another bonded under the fatherhood of God. My father said, "Teach them while they're young. Knowledge of self is crucial which begins at home." After my father was gunned down, my mother kept our father's presence alive in our household. She said, "It is important to me that my girls understand who their father was as a husband, a father, and as a man; that our six babies are equipped to navigate through systemic challenges." The examples of trust, selflessness, compassion and care my parents set in and outside of our household helped me to understand that Life is not a destination, it's a journey. Faith in God makes everything possible. In order to succeed in life, you must first believe that you can. Teaching about truth & justice lives on forever.
