"Being Black & Bilingual is truly a lifestyle and a statement"
To me, being Black & Bilingual is truly a lifestyle. Spanish is not my native language, so I have to constantly practice and speak it on a daily basis. I have been studying Spanish for 15 years, and I still listen to videos, do workbooks, and so on. Black & Bilingual is also a statement. Language is a hidden aspect of someone's personality, and only comes out when necessary. I am a Black girl from Georgia that can and will Spanish at any given moment. When I speak Spanish in public, I often get crazy looks like "what's going on?" or "wow, that was surprising". I wanted to create something that gave language a face, especially in the Black community, so I founded Black & Billingual.
