“This is a city for ALL of us” CONGRATULATIONS @keishabottoms
Atlanta’s 60th mayor!!! She has brains, beauty, class, drive, and is committed to keeping Atlanta moving forward is a POSITIVE direction!!! I’m so here for it!!!
My day was so made yesterday at the #inaugurationday of the #60thMayorofAtlanta @keishabottoms and w/all the #BlackExcellence. Why not just ‘excellence’ you say? This moment in time is the reason I left a successful career in places like Tucson and Louisville. I came back home to a city where I could see more ppl like myself making changes, and not just for themselves, but everyone. Race matters because I have to have a sense of pride in who I am because the vast majority does not. It matters because as long as the light shines and your eyes are functional, you will see my black face, my thick kinky hair (not today though cause @the_rose_affect got me laid HEY!), and hear my “urban vernacular.” You will, without doubt, place your stereotypes and limitations on my life. So while you do that, I’ll be busy creating more #blackgirlmagic. I will possess it all because I surround myself w/those who are after the same goals as ‘she.’ You will know it. My kids will know it. Most importantly, I will know it. And trust me, chile, I know it!! I’m watching the company I keep and the people I meet. Nothing but upward motion in this year of 35 for me. See you in 18 days!! #Countdownto35#1stQuarter#Touchdown#AtlantaGotAMayorNamedKeisha#GAPeach#DougHighAstros#HBCULove 🧡 #DST#MakingChanges#OneAtlanta#KeishaLanceBottoms
