Legacy interrupters…

We see them every day. When we start achieving, that's when they show up. Drawing a hard line when there is grey area. In instances of discretion, opting to obstruct. Call them "Interrupters in the mist". Some might argue that the reprecussions of legacy interruption are equally distributed. But are they?

Let’s look at this whole situation with @carririchardson_. She has been penalized for cannabis consumption, which, by the way, is legal in her state. Repeat: In her state, Oregon, it's legal. So here we have Sha'Carri, working to build her legacy while simultaneously processing a deep personal loss and she's staying on her game. She's the star of the Olympic team. And then she's been interrupted. A (subjective) interpretation of the rule has shut down the building of her legacy. And this is just one instance that we know about. How many decisions like this have been swept under the rug? Not a pity party, but we see selective legacy interruption on the daily and on so many fronts... can't help but imagine where we'd be without the interruption.

As we support Black business owners (aka Black legacy builders), we commit to being voice, advocate and partner in balancing the scale and prevailing in spite of the interrupters. To all of our non-BIPOC supporters, we sincerely THANK YOU. At the same time we ask that you not just be vocal with your support but that you show up in ways that align your actions with your words, even and especially when the interrupters step in to disrupt our legacies being built.

There's a difference between The 4th of Juy and July 4th. That difference is honesty. Accountability. Truth.
Ask someone with Mexican roots about celebrating Cinco de Mayo. They'll tell you it's May 5th to them.
The same way Juneteenth is still July 19th for so many.

Fix the narrative for truth. #baobob #baobobdirectory #bayarea #blackbusiness #july4th #supportlblackownedbusiness

My mom and I grew up together. She was 18 when I was born. She was 54 when she transitioned and the same day, in the same hospital, my first sun was born. The incredible thing about that is my mother's presence went from being physical to being ethereal. She went from being with ME to being EVERYWHERE. Every woman I know is the voice of my mother. "I'm Every Woman" is a declaration that sticks.
Every woman has a mama inside. Loving and celebrating both the mamas inside and the ones here walking. The ones we're from and the ones we go to.

Happy Mother's Day

Celebrating open spaces. No wires overhead. No crosswalks. No billboards, cars, buses. No buildings. @souly_body said it so well, “Each time I am in nature, I feel my energy shift…” That shift is our right and a major part of our healing. It’s important that the skies stay blue and the hills continue to gently roll, blanketed by green grass and wildflowers. That we have fresh, clear waterways. That is our medicine.
We’re glad to collab with @greenbusinessnetwork in bringing dynamic and responsive support for our members who agree that it’s important to protect the medicine and want to show their commitment by becoming green business certified.
Happy Earth Day!!
