“Being Black means a lot of things to me, but most importantly, it’s one of the things that make me different and unique in today’s society. One of the many things…and I feel that it’s an honor to be different and to be accepted today for who I am and my skin color.” – Morgans Olivier

“It’s important to me because our culture is on point. It’s unique, it’s different. We influence a lot of people and it’s great.” – Jadan Wright

“Being different because Black people have a unique look and we have a unique look and we have a different culture. We had to work for things a lot harder than others.” – Hannah Snow

“I feel like being Black is a privilege that you were born into. It feels good to be a part of a very lively and powerful culture.” – Kristha Zapata
