History

I am a historian of African Americans who has just seen history made.

I should say something to mark the occasion.

But I just can't right now.

There may not be words, but I keep saying words to my 6 week old anyway.

He will NEVER know a world where only white males can be President.

I'm trying not to cry.

Looking at my sons, I can't help but cry. One day they will be black men, and I'm so hopeful for their future.

I'm crying also for my grandmother (who I miss) and grandfather (who died a month before I was born) who endured so much and did not live to see this day.
