It’s the 60s.
It’s been 50 years since I watched my favorite singers from the 60’s come back to life.
I was on the dance floor with my friend and her sister.
It was the ’70s.
Nowadays, I’m a grown-up, with a new career and family.
But, back then, it was the first time I felt truly welcome and welcomed as a black woman.
I saw a new generation of women, and they weren’t afraid to be themselves.
I remember when my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer.
I had a chance to see the first black people I knew come out publicly.
It changed my life.
And, even though I’m not a professional singer, I still go out on the street and sing.
It doesn’t matter if it’s my favorite artist or favorite song.
The difference is that when I sing, I feel like I’m singing for myself.
I don’t care if it makes me a star or a celebrity.
I’m just singing for a crowd.
The song I sing doesn’t have to make me famous.
It can be a simple song about my family and friends, or a powerful song that makes people feel better.
That’s what matters.
It makes a difference.
The music industry, especially country music, has not been doing enough to empower black women, especially black women singer.
There are so many talented black women singing and making music today.
They deserve a place in the spotlight, and I believe that country music should be the place for them to do that.
But it’s a problem that will only grow with time.
It will be harder to have a platform when it’s about the entertainment industry.
The country music industry is not doing enough for its African American artists.
Country music is not a place for people like me.
We need a place where African American people can showcase their talents, but also feel welcome.
