Imani Perry

"I do not believe the acts of oppressors are my people's shame. For me, that my people became, created, and imagined from a position of unfreedom is a source of deep pride, not shame... What better evidence of human beauty and resilience could there be?"

from Breathe: A Letter to My Sons (p. 21)
