“I would say I’m Black because my parents said I’m Black. I’m Black because my mother’s Black. I’m black because I grew up in a family of all Black people. I knew I was Black because I grew up in an all-white neighborhood. And my parents, as part of their protective mechanisms that they were going to give to us, made it very clear what we were.” — Soledad O’ Brien
