"You won't see Creative Life Community Fest on Channel 3"- a community leader doing some MCing for the named event.

"They treat you different if your mom is up at school all the time"- a kid being tutored by my mama.

I feel the hard work that black folks do for our communities is often rendered invisible- overwritten by either the heroic white person or the one black person who 'gets tough' on those unruly kids, ignoring the fact that it's not just one grand gesture, but over and over, creating a home and security for the children.
