What do I stand for?

I have been wondering what to use this blog for, and if anyone would read it. You see, this website is dedicated to my experience as a musician, and my story. Being a black woman informs my music and my story. So I'll begin to share what I think about things. First, this.


Whether I wanted it to or not:


My black laughter is a form of protest. My black elegance is a form of protest. My black posture is a form of protest. My black speech is a form of protest. My black hair is a form of protest. My black stare is a form of protest. My black voice is a form of protest. My black song is a form of protest. My black TRIUMPH is a form of protest. My black SPIRIT is a form of protest.


My black SMILE is a form of protest.


Why?


When the oppressors see someone who looks like me rising above in spite of all the b.s., it bugs the S*%! out of them.


I stand proudly as a Black Woman, and I'm out to show what excellence looks like. For all those women out there who are sidelined, not taken seriously. For those who have been diminished simply because of the way they look. For those whose work speaks VOLUMES of their character. I stand with you.


Stay tuned for more, world.


Signing off, your resident ray of sunshine,

Débo Ray
