Black Truth (by Daejah)

It’s Black History Month. Well, Black History Month is almost over. But I wanted to continue to highlight the black voices even after the month is over. So I’ve asked some badass, powerful, black women to write for my site. So for the next few weeks, you will be hearing from a variety of women on a variety of topics. Anyway, enough of me. You need to hear from Daejah.


The color of my skin.

The color of my soul.

What I practice and preach.

The color of the berets worn for me to be free.

The motherland.

Where all sing together

and cry for their

brethren together.

The number of people

who fought to be free

for decades.

The culture I adore.

All things that make me

Who I am.

Daejah was born and raised in Chicago. Being of 2 cultures, she has been able to branch out and embrace both. A music theatre and vocal performance major, she always connected to her culture through song and theatre. So is so grateful to Faith for sharing her piece. She hopes to share her culture with others and spread awareness.

You can follow Daejah (and hear her wonderful singing voice!) on Instagram @dejavu502
