I gotta tell y'all, as the daughter of older, southern black folks, I'm starting to get real emotional over here. Just thinking about how my grandaddies and grandmommas would've experienced this moment is enough to give me emo bangs. Seriously though, other issues aside, the symbolism of this moment means so much to the people who came before, who raised me, whose stories I grew up with in the back of my mind, and I hope it does lead to mega history being made.
