Toni the Gray Panther

So, this morning my Mom watched the Jesse Williams speech.  She LOVED it!!

(For those that do not know…my Mom was a “first black” in many things politically, educationally, etc…breaking down walls, crashing through ceilings, etc.)

Empowerment, growth and justice embodies her.  So, she was HYPED after watching.

Mom:  Oh yes….I hope these young people listen, hear and do something.

Me:  I agree…I have watched his speech over and over.

Mom:  I have to listen to that again.

Me.  I agree

Mom:  Shoot….maybe I can get with the Black Panthers…well….

Me: (waiting)

Mom:  I think I would be more like a Gray Panther now…
