Black History Month – Ms. Lauryn Hill

Who’s Lovin’ You? 
Black History Month – Day 1

At 13 years old Ms. Lauryn Hill took the stage at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, NYC. Already her fierce determination shows through when she keeps singing in the face of the crowd’s booing. I think it is a beautiful metaphor for the resilience required for surviving and thriving in a culture that devalues your being and your gifts. The best part is that she gets back on key and finishes the song. So when we ask with the song, Who’s Lovin’ You? One clear answer is God. It is God who loves the “souls of black folks” (DuBois) and bestows the courage to live in the face of dissing of the soul. Inspiring.
