I’ve been thinking a lot about The Average Black Girl poem that I featured on Tuesday. About how I’m trying to learn and understand better. However, the more I thought about it, the more I realized that I will never fully understand. That’s the thought that has kept with me these past couple of days. Especially while listening to “I Can’t Breathe” by H.E.R. This is a beautiful and important song. And I can recognize its importance as protest and appreciate its beauty as a work of art, but I will never fully understand the experiences behind it. But I can continue to listen and learn, and so that is exactly what I’ll do. Listen and learn, and hopefully do both better.
