“To the world, it is so hard to define black women. They are magical yet misunderstood, intelligent yet bossy and powerful yet angry. They are meant to be seen not heard and are often misunderstood. Black women are the American dark side of the moon. For those who don’t know the far side of the moon is often referred to as the “dark side”. This side of the Moon is not really the "dark side" it is just the side of the Moon we do not see from Earth. It in fact gets just as much sunlight on it as the side we do see. However, it is fear, unexplored, and misunderstood.”  - Cries from the Dark Side of the Moon
