This is similar to what my daddy used to tell me when I was itty tiny girl. And Brotha Tate is passing along his wonderful version of this powerful message in a dynamic heartfelt way. Absolutely! As a child, I was different...it's called being creative now...or artistic. I was the opposite of what little girls were supposed to be or aspire to be prior to women's lib times. And because of what my father said to me often...in terms of acceptance of who I was, I never felt I didn't belong merely because I was not interested in those traditional "women" things. So I bloomed into my authentic self. As a culture, we need to hear this message once again. Cuz we need to revisit the authenticity of what makes us who we are as black people. Thank you my brotha. So for the rest of us....who need to bloom into self excellence. Hear this message cuz now is the time. But!
