Back in 2021, I was interviewed by Yahoo life in an article titled ‘Black Women On What Halloween Means To Them: Dressing up and parading around was always a joy.” In the interview, I shared my Black girl love for Halloween. It wasn’t published in the but, somewhere during the conversation, I began to weep. The woman who interviewed me kept referring to me as a Black woman. Here I was, achieving shit as not just Michelle Halloween but, as a Black woman.

While it’s not new for me to be recognized as a Black woman, I am light-skinned. Being biracial comes with the challenge of not being black enough and being black enough.

I am so Black that I am approached because of my “exotic” beauty.

I am black enough to be a shock in rural parts and suburban PTA’s.

I am black enough to be a token friend until I defend Black Lives and the collapse of capitalism.

Being Black is joyous and unnecessarily terrifying.

I am Black enough to have been loud but unheard. Black enough to be full of light but, often unseen.

I am goth because I am Black.

Black enough to feel the pain of the past and those whose voices where stolen.

Black History is ongoing. It is my everyday. Black History Month is dedicated to celebrating Black achievements. So…

These are mine and those who have elevated my life. May we inspire you to to extend your knowledge about Black history and culture beyond February.
