Black is Beautiful (Essay)

This is my contribution to Black History Month 2014.

"Black is Beautiful" is a personal essay that I wrote during my first year of graduate school. It explores the topics of how the legacy of slavery has left a negative impact on the Black communtiy today; the N-word; and Colorism with interesting references to Plato's Cave, Minstrel Shows, Alice Walker, Joy Degruy-Leary, and Spike Lee.
