Celebrating the beautiful hues of our skin!

Embracing each other in unity!

 Can’t You See?

I may be black but I am beautiful from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet

I am not the lightest of light or the lightest  of brown

I am the darkest of dark as you can see

It doesn’t matter what you say or how you code my skin

what matters most is the soul inside and the beautiful dreams within

So it doesn’t matter that I may not be the lightest of light or the lightest of brown

I am the darkest of dark and I like what I see

I am somebody with a warm soul inside and dreams as big as big can be

I am somebody not because of the color of my skin

but for the beautiful soul that resides within

I am black and I am beautiful

Can’t you see?

(Culbreth, 2013)
