J. bennett‘”When I was born my mother’s smile was so bright it knocked the air from my lungs, and I haven’t been able to breathe right since.”

-Joshua Bennett

There can be no correct combination of words to truly and accurately describe the black woman. A majestic creature with delicate skin and an iron soul, many a writer, poet, and songwriter have attempted to capture her essence with words and music, but, much like the golden sunrise captured in a photograph, the effort to record and replicate never does the reality justice.

It’s Throwback Thursday, and what a throwback this is indeed.

Take in the bliss-inducing, goose-bumps-giving words of Bennett below in the poem “10 Things I Want To Say To A Black Woman.”
