A couple of decades ago I visited a place in eastern Europe where I felt like a curious attraction.

This is why visibility matters, the more black people are seen around the world, in the remotest corners, the more likely we are to be comfortable and feel “normal” wherever we go.

Why do you think Diversity matters?I can’t imagine my wardrobe full of only white, black, or red clothing! The diversity of colors gives it life, and it makes me happy when I open it and see a wide range of endless combinations and possibilities . A diverse environment does the same.
