My Truth: Superb Black Women

By Cheryl Smith

Black women. The way the walk, talk, think, stretch a dollar, feed a community, make a boo boo all well, pray, move a mountain, fight off demons and so much more. When no one is at practice, sitting beside the hospital bed, posting bail, ready to battle a drug dealer or going without so you can have; it’s a woman.

When you think about the uses and abuses over time; it appears everyone feels like they can take stabs at the Black Woman. The attacks have been so blatant and commonplace that you have women taking on the ways of the oppressors and becoming just as damning, if not more.

Which brings me to my truth. Earlier this year, I said that this was the year of the Black Woman. March is Women’s History Month and it is important to support our women. But not just in March.

We need to recognize women We began celebrating women in our daily e-newsletter (subscribe at at the beginning of March. Then on March 2, we began focusing on women, locally and nationally, as well as internationally. We’re looking for women of all ages and celebrating who they are and what they do.

Some people are household names and others you may have never heard of; we want to share their stories and we’re doing it ALL YEAR LONG!

Do you know someone we should recognize? Send us their name and how we can find out more about them. Email us at

Now we don’t tell that we’re recognizing them and this is not a money making ploy. It’s simple, we just want to spread something these ladies need more of than anything: LOVE!
