As ‘white’ as I am, and for better or worse, I’ve always been race conscious and aware of my ‘blackness’ that makes me feel part of ‘the other.’ That’s why I always notice (with relief) when people of color represent in the realm of default whiteness. Black/brown Christmas angels are definitely in the minority. And a proud black female #soldier angel even more so. Black is beautiful, my sisters and brothers.
(PS: These angels are in the window of my local Goodwill.)
