We've shown love to young black girls and black men, but now we want to speak to the parents that helped us become exactly who we are.
- Thank you for showing me what it means to persevere, be courageous and advocate for your children in a world that doesn’t expect you to do any of that.
- Putting yourself first is not selfish. Being mentally, physically, and spiritually balanced can influence the balance of our family.
- Take some time for yourself. Relax.
- You remind me every day what hard work and dedication truly mean. I appreciate you.
- I think you're beautiful. Exactly how you are - love marks, curves and all! #Blackgirlmagic
- It’s okay to be lonely, but know that you are not alone.
- You're powerful. The risk you took bringing and protecting a black life in this world speaks to that.
- Material things don’t matter. Your love and support is what we crave the most.
- You are the reason I will never ever quit.
- We miss you! Even though we don’t call enough, know that we are thinking of you daily.
- You have the power to break any family habits and cycles. What your mother, sister and grandmother did is NOT a reflection of how you have to live your life.
- You are enough. I know raising a black family is not easy, and you did an amazing job!
- Don't stop dreaming just because you're getting older. Black will never crack and your dreams are there for a reason. Go get 'em, just like you taught us too.
- Thank you. Thank you for all the sacrifices you made.
