Why are you proud to be black?
"I'm really proud to be black because I'm a Christian and I believe God created this earth and everything he created in it was good, and I'm proud to be a part of God's creation. I'm proud to be a part of black culture."
Why is it important to recognize black history?
"I think we should celebrate black history so that we don't forget the struggle our forefathers went through. We came over as slaves, but now we have freedom."
Who is your role model and why?
"My role model is my mother, my father and my brothers. My mom and dad wanted to make sure we got an education. The knowledge and wisdom that they gave us made us what we are today."
