Behold. 
BLACK MEN. 

In the wake of yet another brutal murder of an innocent Black man, we pause to honor the beloved and brilliant Black men in our Golden Bridge global community.

We speak your names in respect. In life. In gratitude for your endless streams of creative power pouring forth onto our dance floors, your noble hearts loving us all so fiercely, your mighty minds quickening our thinking, your souls inspiring the world.

In devotion, I share these soul qualities.
You are these and so much more.
