FNN CELEBRATES BLACK HISTORY: FEB. 5, 2014. I am Black History because I am Rosa Parks, I stood up for equal rights for all black people everywhere. I am not afraid to stand up or sit down for what I believe in! I show courage when others doubt me. I tune out the noise when I hear hatred screaming at me. I am Black power. I always fight through a challenge. I am a strong African-American woman who will inspire a nation. I made a movement in Black History. I think that everyone should have equal rights. I like to be a leader. I want people to look up to me and want to be me. I want to make a mark in Black History. I want to start a revolution that everyone wants to be a part of. I stand out from other people. I think outside the box. I am proud of where I come from and who I am. I speak the truth about my surroundings. The color of my skin does not define me. It does not tell my character.
