We cannot turn back."

We all know that I haven't gotten justice, but that doesn't mean that I'm not going to keep fighting for it. This struggle is much larger than me.

How do we eliminate the bias against black skin which seems to be so inextricably linked to issues of discrimination that have a real impact on the progress of African-Americans? Economic investment, legal reform and improvements in education are certainly needed. But, I also believe that positive multicultural media is part of the solution.
