When peripherals collide, convergence is imminent. Following are my reflections on 2020 Black History Month.

Sitting across from President Donald John Trump during a landmark historic round table black history discussion, I smiled as he asked the group gathered whether we would like to be called Black or African Americans. As one, we resounded: “Black!” As a group, we went on to explain that while the reasons are complicated, the terms are acceptably interchangeable.

What was most compelling about the honor of sitting with the POTUS and powerful and motivated peers was the air of transparency in the room. President Trump is an active listener and a consummate communicator. The atmosphere was charged with hope and vision; not racist, not colorblind. Our ethnicity was there in the White House, for all to see!

“We all bleed the same.” —President Donald J. Trump

With America’s “Black History Month” now behind us, over the moon and back would describe the black history events that occurred during the 29 days of Black History Month 2020. Presidential pardons, clemency, fair housing seminars, round table talks and more mark this landmark leap year. With President Trump, our most pro-life president ever, at the helm, there are even brighter days ahead; especially for our babies in the womb.
