Black

Anthony Austin Young
Class of 2012
International Business

I chose Black because I am a Black American, but more importantly, Black encompasses all things. When you see the color black, you underestimate it because all you see is black but you neglect its story of becoming black. We ignore its journey of encompassing other things much like me. Black to be Black has to go through a journey, just like I did. Black is not simply one color, but all colors. Black is not a destination, it’s a journey.
